As we observe your birthday
Your cake and gifts don’t matter much.
These common things aren’t really you,
Ribbons, paper hats and such.
We celebrate a person who
Brings happiness to everyone,
Someone who gives more than she gets,
And fills our lives with joy and fun.
So Happy birthday
, and many more!
We hope you make it to a hundred and two,
Because we cannot even dream
What life would be like without you.
