A Birthday Memory
09/09/2013 Written 8/18/1996
My thoughts of you, are in the quietest of places, where only gentle memories of youth go. You will exist forever, in this place of heart and mind. I see the face of the provider, as I recall the love you so unselfishly offered. I feel your embrace, as you consoled me through the confusion of my adolescence. I hear the words of the nurturer, who had the wisdom to insist I make my own decisions.
Today, we’re celebrating family and birthdays and it will be a great day. I know that sometime during this day you will say or do something that will find it’s way to that quiet place of memories and I’ll keep it forever.
