The third anniversary of loosing my oldest daughter...and I still don't know if I am doing things right. Just thought I would share a poem I wrote for anyone dealing with the same...

Today is an un-birthday
It is not a day of joy
Full of gifts and toys
It is not full of smiles
Or cards sent over the miles
It’s not a day of dreams
Birthday cards or ice cream

Today is an un-birthday
It’s a day full of tears
Full of pain and mascara smears
It is a day full of sorrow
Over the loss of tomorrow
It is a day of gloom
One that came too soon

Today is an un-birthday
It’s a day of hurt and grief
Full of anger and disbelief
It’s not a day of gladness and cheer
It’s the day I lost my child,
No matter the year

Today is an unbirthday.
