Birth Day Wish (November 7) - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

hapi bday myself
melvin Banggollay

Today is my only natal day
For its the time I was born
To behold life's great beauty
From my mother's womb.

I remember that on this day
I felt my father's tender bones
Lifted me up as he prayed
Thank Lord for this newborn.

Lord I thank you for this day
You gave me a life to explore
And the power I need all day
To sail in the ocean's floor.

I have just one wish to say
With every breath I employ;
Healthy and happy life only
For my dear family to enjoy.

Sorry, I still got one to say
Peace and goodwill to men
That on the eve of your day
We will all be merry. Amen.
