Napowrimo 9

Although you are no longer here
Meaning today is no longer your birthday
It is still your birthday
As we celebrate others waving palms
Heralding the entrance to the city
Where all will take their place
Placing branches and coats along the road 
Although he is no longer here
We still sing Hosanna a little too loud 
And we will be together and alone
On the road to the hill where you rest
Waiting for redemption from the dust
So raise palms in honor of this day
Your birthday even though you are gone
