For Paul (a birthday poem)

The mixed emotions of birthdays
Wishing my friend well
Sending condolences also;
Life is like that;
A dance on earth between heaven and hell.

We’ve had some times and will have more
Though sometimes we dance with limping
We’ve spun our myths, chewed through the core,
Laughed ourselves weak from thinking.

Today? Enjoy, my lifelong friend
May all these moments cheer you.
we’ve not yet reached this story’s end;
Someone still needs to hear you.
