‘Happy Birthday! ’ Dear Doctor


Well, fifty years have flown off rather fast,
Since you became a doctor of repute!
So evergreen are memories of past,
When birthdays come and add a year acute.

The toil and struggles had made life worthwhile!
Whoever thought that you would do so well?
Reminiscences bring to face a smile;
The joys though lesser outdid woes, we tell.

But who had made the mighty difference, say?
And who had given success despite strife?
Without a doubt, it was God, all the way!
Let’s thank the Almighty in earthly life!

The thread of life gets snapped by God’s decree;
God does not bother about our degree!

Doctor ‘Happy Birthday!
May God bless you today!
