Remembering a birthday....

What would you be doing
today on your 62nd birthday?

Did you like cake and ice cream?
Would you allow 62 candles to grace your dessert of choice?

Would you pass on the years of wisdom
to your daughters and grandchildren
with us?

Would you have a blog detailing your growing family?
Would we skype you today?

I take a moment today
to remember
to question
to wonder
and I know that is o.k. to do
on what would have been
your birthday today.

In loving memory
Brenda Marie Conklin Shippy
on what would have been
her 62nd birthday....
all who loved you dearly
still remember.
