Your birthday was a special day.
Your tiny body from this world did come.
Your mother smiled the pain away.
Your father shed a tear and some.
Each year another candle’s lit
In memory of that wondrous day.
With close friends you laugh and sit
And celebrate in many ways.
As you grow the flame burns bright,
Then flickers in the winds of time.
Dimming in the fading light;
Sweet memories flashing through your mind.
So you don’t forget when you were born
Cakes get bigger one by one.
More candles the globe to warm
Till one day the fire is gone.
Life is short, the days are long
But you dear friend are going strong.
I’ll see you soon; till then so long.
