Unrequited Birthday Love

          I bought a card for you last week
          if only I can find it,
          it should arrive your natal day
          with all my love behind it.
          You've moved two times since my last card,
          you never did write back,
          I know I had your address once
          but somehow I've lost track.
          So I'll spend three hours finding it
          then write it out just so,
          then decorate the envelope:
          a birthday-sticker bow.
          I can't recall when you last phoned
          or how long since you wrote,
          but I'll find fancy paper
          and insert a friendly note.
          Then just before I send it off
          I'll cover it with prayer,
          that God will bless your special day
          till you have joy to spare.
          And once it's there within your hands
          you'll tear it carelessly,
          and in your fast-paced, hurried life,
          won't even think of me.
          My card won't see the light of day,
          you'll peek in it for cash,
          and when you're sure there's none inside,
          you'll toss it ~ in the trash.

"Love bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never fails."

(see I Corinthians 13:7-8)
