For Today is Your Birthday

Updated on October 9, 2017

Israel is a fan of many types of music and loves to write, not in any particular order and does them usually at the same time.

The pain is still there,

Your pain is gone,

I wish you were,

Grateful you no longer suffer,


We miss you,

She misses you,

We love you,

She loves you,


Time has passed,

It still feels like yesterday,

The images are crisp in my head,

That night plays over and over,


I search for answers still,

Was there anything else we could have done?

I must accept what I don't know,

Tears pool in my eyes,


An alive soul,

Eyes that would pierce,

Personality of fire,

A body that didn't agree,


You define courage,

I couldn't have done what you have done,

I couldn't have gone through what you went through,

Awake everyday as much as you could,


Despite the pain,

The setbacks,

Surgery after surgery,

ER visit after ER visit,


You fought bravely to the very end,

I am so proud to be of your blood,

You teach us all a valuable lesson,

That life is what you make it,


We haven't forgotten you,

We miss you so much,

We love you so much,

For today is your birthday,


Happy Birthday... …
