happy birthday april
for an eternity to come
because with your faith in God
an eternity was won

no more worries or fears of death
no more choking or gasping for breath
no need for doctors or even a nurse
there is only one cure for every single curse

no fighting, debating
or picking sides
love is the answer 
and love decides

i thank God for this day
the day that you were born
for without this day
my love would be forlorn

one day for certian
when the deadline comes
i'll pass through the curtian
and straight for you i'll run

and as God as my wittness
to the many days i cried
i often wanted to be with you
but thank God i never tried

we could have had our love story
and then let that be that
but the Lord has a better story
and i believe that that's a fact

i still believe in a love 
that is so so true
the love that holds us together
me, God and you

John, I am going back and reading some of your poetry and I am mesmerized by your use of words that so expresses your inner most feelings. This piece is written from the heart -as a lot of the others - I am truly moved by it. Thanks for sharing. One love. Joy Wells

If we take a sensitive use of words, emotion and insight, a poet may be born; You have all three John but problems are hampering your talent. Remember, when you reach bottom, there's nowhere to go but up but patience may be needed sobe good to yourself till this passes. :Love, Elizabeth

What a very touching tribute to April-- I totally agree with that mindset, of being thankful to God for the day that person was born, of having had that chance to spend time with them...very nice way to end this poem, John...

John, you opened your heart and said it all with such feeling. I can only imagine how it must hurt. A book is certainly in order - soup mail

Dear John, there really is no love that can survive without faith. I can feel both your pain and your love in this beautifully written poem. You sure are growing as a writer! Isn't it about time you published a book? Love, Carolyn
