Happy Birthday, Freddy! It's been 9 years and I think of you often.
Just One Day
Just one day to hold youAnd tightly clutch your handTell you how I love youIn all the words I canJust one day to see youGazing on your faceTrying to make a memoryTo hold it fixed in placeJust one day to share youWith family that I lovePassing you from arm to armCooing like a doveJust one day to pray for youAnd plead a heartfelt prayerAsking for more timeAnd more moments to shareJust one day to say goodbyeA parting at the lastSending you home againI know our time has past.Just one day and then it's goneFor one more smileFor one more tearFor one more laughFor one more cryFor one more hugFor one more partingFor one more lossFor one more moment of joy
