It’s your birthday, lovely lady,
my wish for you is pure.
I wish for you more birthdays,
with only comfort to endure.
I wish bird songs and Ill Divo serenades,
visits from family and friends galore.
I wish good memories of a happy life,
now’s the time to reflect and adore.
I wish you long talks with Jesus,
so He continues to fill your heart.
I wish for more time together,
for I’ve loved you from my start.
I write my poem to please you,
from the heart of the child in me.
For you’ve given me a mother’s love,
and that’s the way that it should be.
For you 84th birthday
