So today is the second birthday you’ve been gone.
I miss you Donna.
Everyday there is some thing new to miss.
Last night I drempt of you.
We were in your old house in bay street.
Decorating the Christmas tree.
Well you were it had to be perfect.
You were dancing to Pink
Glass of vodka and lemonade in your hand laughing long black hair shining
We sat together on your huge sofa
Guess what I’ve bought you.
I sigh roll my eyes.
Shall I give you a clue?
Tell you what it begins with?
Nooooo I laugh I’ll wait.
You loved Christmas.
Everything about it.
I woke up I could still.smell your perfume.
The rain battered at the window.
I heard your voice “raining on my birthday!”
Happy birthday I whisper.
I miss you.
Im working but plan to go to the cemetery on way .
I’ve bought you a happy feet penguin it’s so heavy
Concrete it’s a garden ornament.
I know you’ll love it.
I ring your daughter tell her I’ll meet her by the cemetery gates at 11.30 after I pick up flowers
Drive over to supermarket to pick up sun flowers for you.
As I’m driving pink comes on the radio.
I smile your everywhere I know your by my side.
There are no sunflower left I stand there and something catches my eye.
A Christmas tree a potted one with roots.
I think of my dream
Pick up the tree and a pack of baubles
Ten mins later I meet Sarah and Chloe and after I decorate the tree as symmetrically I can whist sat in a car in the rain
I take it to you.
Happy birthday love I say as we all get out of the car .
Sarah puts the star on top
Chloe ties a balloon to the little fence we put up in summer .
The dancing penguin and tree are just you Donna.
The rain has stopped .
Hope you like the tree I say
She would love it Sarah says
I know you do.
You’d be long gone
I’d stand up and punch them out
‘Cause they’re all wrong
‘Cause you said forever
Happy birthday Donna ❤️
