Happy Birthday my friend. We should be meeting for lunch today, or we would have met earlier this week to celebrate our close birthdays. We should be laughing together and sharing memories from the past. We should feel carefree, like we used to feel. The happiness we felt when together; 2 crazy women just enjoying life.
Last year we were hit with a massive curve ball that shattered both our lives in different ways. Last year brought a divide into our lives, so why am I writing this? Why can’t I turn off my thoughts? Why can’t my heart forget the date?
My heart can’t forget what we shared. The memories are there. Sometimes they will come with no warning. I will find something you gave me or hear something that reminds me of you. The memories are many.
Happy Birthday my friend. Things happen that we don’t understand. We may scream, we may cry, we may bend our heads in despair, but we can’t go back. We have to move on.
Life keeps going. Life is made up of moments; wonderful ones and painful ones. We have shared both kinds in our journey of friendship. Last year we came to a fork in the road and we are not sharing these moments together anymore. We may not be sharing life’s moments , BUT my heart will not forget the date.
Happy Birthday my friend. My heart won’t forget the date. The truth breaks through. My heart won’t forget, because my heart still cares and it always will.
