Happy Birthday To My Child


Happy Birthday To My Child

It was yesterday that you were born
I can vividly remember everything
That led to that beautiful afternoon
The sky was perfect, which was a big thing
At this time of the year, in this wintry season.

In any event, that was a wonderful day
A kaleidoscopical day that you, of course, can only wonder
However your mother and I will always remember
The first cries, the first tears and the first day
That we spent together as a unit, as one.

The Almighty God has been good to us, as a family
And despite the natural ups and downs of life,
We can honestly say that we’ve been blessed and lucky.

On this special occasion, I want to reassure you
That I, your dad, will forever be there to protect you
And to love you, as long as I am alive
And the unwavering waves of love that I feel for you
Will never dissipate, as long as I am alive.

You know that I expect you to do your homework
With the help of the Almighty Jehovah
You will always follow the right and correct path
And the entire family and I will support and work
With you until the last breath, until the last laugh.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
