A birthday wish to someone special


Like a cherry tree bloomed
I can feel the fragrance around
A face full of energy and life
always radiating happiness
with contagious grin
beaming from within

I salute your unconquerable spirit
and persistent determination
I admire in you
the internal strength and wisdom
I treasure your uniqueness
the caring heart and adorable smile

At times, I wonder how would I say
how much you mean to me
and how much you have given me
the support, encouragement
With each additional candle on the cake
I contemplate once again
how privileged I've been
to have you in my life
Thank you my dearest
for making my life brighter and sweet
you are a gift of tranquility in my life

It's your birthday
and I know,
you must be feeling lonely today
well,
I may be far from you
thousands miles away
from your birthday cake
but, close your eyes and look
deep down your feelings
I am there clapping
singing your birthday song
holding you in embrace
dancing with shear joy
so,
don't ever think of my absence
I'm there with you
at every breath of life
Happy Birthday, sweetheart!

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
