Just One Day

Happy Birthday, Freddy!  It's been 9 years and I think of you often. 

Just One Day

Just one day to hold you
And tightly clutch your hand
Tell you how I love you
In all the words I can

Just one day to see you
Gazing on your face
Trying to make a memory
To hold it fixed in place

Just one day to share you
With family that I love
Passing you from arm to arm
Cooing like a dove

Just one day to pray for you
And plead a heartfelt prayer
Asking for more time
And more moments to share

Just one day to say goodbye
A parting at the last
Sending you home again
I know our time has past.

Just one day and then it's gone
For one more smile
For one more tear
For one more laugh
For one more cry
For one more hug
For one more parting
For one more loss
For one more moment of joy
