I said a Birthday Prayer for you
and asked the Lord to bless
this wonderful occasion
with love and happiness.
I asked that He'd bestow upon you
Special heavenly graces.
Simple pleasures, sweet delights,
your favorite friendly faces.
I prayed for you to have a year
of great dreams coming true,
A year of growth and wisdom
and deep fulfillment, too.
Finally, I said a prayer to thank God
for the way you enrich the lives
of others through all you do and say.
