Broken Chains

Your birthday is tomorrow

And all I can think is

Can you imbibe in heaven

Has that demon finally

Climbed off of your back

Can you enjoy the freedom

Of not being chained

To unending intoxication

Can you truly feel

Joy again

Laugh out loud

Be at peace

As I continue to miss

The life we once had

I dream for you

A loving embrace

And the happiness

That you lost for years

Will all be within your grasp
