Happy Birthday to my dear friend,
I wish you a happy and great day.
Can't believe you're now one year older,
Time to celebrate and holler Hooray!
Being an age older than you,
I must give you a little advice.
Growing older is not just getting wiser,
It's all in the roll of the dice.
Some of us start to forget things,
Others our bodies unravel.
We wish we could take aging and stop it,
Or maybe sent it somewhere to travel.
All I can say is eat well,
And try and take care of yourself.
A little exercise and great company,
Is what aging is all about.
To You My Friend
An Irish Blessing
I wish you health, I wish you well,
and happiness galore.
I wish you luck for you and friends;
what could I wish you more?
May your joys be as deep as the oceans,
your troubles as light as its foam.
And may you find, sweet peace of mind, where ever you may roam.
This thought is sent to you
Wishing success in all you do
You, my friend, deserve the best
May this birthday find you blessed!
So, another year passes, another year older
Be happy, be joyful, don't let your heart get colder
You see my friend a birthday is just a day
For celebration and love are sent your way.
Poet: R. C. Lehman
Through the changing years may all delight
Live in your face and make your being bright.
May the good sprites and busy fays befriend you,
And cheerful thoughts and innocent defend you;
And, far away
From this most joyous day,
When in the chambers of your mind you see
Those who have loved you, then remember me.
