My Birthday


Yeah! It’s my birthday.
I am grinning, my happy day.
As family and friends send wishes,
I know I am truly blessed.

Blessings from up above, I ask.
Anoint my head, O Lord.
Wishes and blessings I receive.
This day, my birth date.

Before I get carried away.
By celebrations and presents.
A Birthday Cake with candles, maybe.
A wish for me I share with you.

Birthday wishes, my birthday.
Of joy, happiness and laughter.
I share these with you, my friend.
How awesome a day, my day.

If none of the above happens,
I will still count myself blessed.
For this day in history I was born.
Two persons had already loved me.
