Happy Birthday, Friend - Poem by Greg Oosterhouse
Happy birthday, friend,
Now is the time to celebrate.
This, the anniversary of your birth,
To me, is a very important date.
This is my gift for you,
This poem I now present.
You deserve much more,
Because to me, you are Heaven-sent.
I feel as if it is my birthday,
Because to me you are a wonderful gift.
The very thought of you makes me smile,
You give my heart and soul a lift.
Time spent with you is a party,
Even when it's just us two.
It is great fun being in your presence.
I'd feel lonely to be without you.
So friend, consider this poem to be a hug,
A warm embrace to squeeze you tight.
May it also assure you of my love,
Which is with you always day and night.
Lord, there is none beside, nor before You.
Domine Deus, tu solus sanctus. Amen.
