Today is Steve’s 47th birthday. We lost Steve to this world but there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of him. Happy Birthday Steve. I miss you – this song is for you:

He gave to me his tenderness
His friendship and his love
I see his face from time to time
There in the sky above

We grew up learning as we went
What a voyage our lives could be
It took us through a wilderness
Into the calmest sea

His smile could lift me from the pain
I often found within
He said some things I won’t forget
He made a few bells ring

So simple his humility
His beauty found in grace
Today he lives another life
In some fantastic place

He showed me how to raise a smile
Out of a bed of gloom
And though he saw some some tragedy
A life began to bloom

He visualized a world ahead
And planned how it would be
He left behind the strongest gift
That lives eternally

I have to hope that when it’s time
For me to come his way
That he’ll be there to show me around
Whenever comes that day

His love was life and happiness
And in his steps I trace
The way to live a better life
In some fantastic place.
