Happy Second Birthday, Andy!

This poem was published  in the December 2010 issue of FSMA’s Directions magazine. It perfectly captures how we hope Andy is celebrating his second birthday in heaven today – he always loved a party!

A Birthday Celebration in Heaven

I heard you crying yesterday

And felt your heart-sent love

So I’m sending you this message now,

From Heaven up above

You’re wondering if I’ll celebrate my birthday

(way up here)

I know you’re missing me today

I feel your essence near

God planned a special day for me

He told me with a wink

He ordered me a special cake

(It’s Angel food, I think)

I’m getting lots of hugs from God

He’s really good at that

And every time that I walk by

He gives my head a pat

Balloons will fill the streets for me

They float up through the clouds

And we have lots of clowns up here

That make us laugh out loud

There is a birthday carousel

Jeweled horses ride the wind

With music playing oh so sweet…

The magic never ends

I’ve made so many friends, you see

We laugh and play and sing

We ride our bikes and play jump rope

And sleep in Angel’s wings

We’ll have our cake and ice cream

And open gifts, surprise!

But we don’t blow out our candles here

Instead, they light the skies

Happy birthday, Andy! We will be sending you some special balloons today – and hoping they fill the streets of heaven. We love and miss you so much.
