Birthday Girl

dad & daughter

Another year! You’re turning five!
How good it is to be alive!
Lifelong I’ll cherish memories sweet
Of your dear voice and running feet.
When you return at end of day
At home we’ll continue with play
Until evening when it is night
And I at last turn off your light
And bless you with a father’s prayer
Soft whispered through your flowing hair.

God bless you! Yes – happy birthday!
Another year has flown away!
