What do you

do

When the day you’re

To be

Celebrating

You

Becomes tarnished?

Tainted?

And you look at the sky

And wonder why

You’ve not been

Sainted

Like your twin

Above.

 

Birthdays are special,

It’s true;

They are a deliverance

Into light

Into life

Into a whole new world–

But at what cost?

How much pain have we

Inflicted

On our mothers

In delivery?

How much grief do we

Bring

Our loved ones

With our horribly inborn

Iniquity?

And yet, some do not

Celebrate

Their birthdays

Here, on Earth

But instead in the ethereal atmosphere,

Swathed in

Warm

Beautiful

Godly

Mirth.

Their birth is not

Earthly, they do not

Have to fear the pain

Of worldly sin

And rot

Until they are

Mere dust.

 

So be thankful for

Birthdays, whether

On earth or

In heaven;

Soon, fellow believers,

We will all be in

The Ether.

Happy very belated birthday to my lovely twin up in heaven, even if we didn’t make it together (I guess that means you technically have a different b-day, huh? Oh well…). Can’t wait til we can celebrate together someday.
