Happy Birthday Baby Jesus! - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns

How many candles would I need
If I was to bake You a birthday cake?
Then to send it up to Heaven,
Whose taxi cab should I take?

I hope You know frankincense and myrrh
Are too expensive for me to buy?
Oh yes I’m certain that You do
For You hear every time I cry!

I looked up to the stars last night.
Mommy took me to the Christmas parade.
I did not see Your streets of gold,
But I hear that’s how they are made!

I have grown to a very big kid.
Yes I’m in kindergarten now!
My grandparents would be proud of me,
But they live with You somehow!

I Know some day I will visit them,
But first I’ll kiss You right on the cheek.
I know someday You’ll make me strong
After I’ve grown all old and weak!

I see a bright star up by the moon.
Is it the shepherd’s star I see?
Maybe You are winking with one eye
And You are doing it to me!

So I just sent to You a wink,
And I hope that You are pleased!
So, Happy Birthday Baby Jesus!
From my family and especially me!
