Now that D-Day comes with time
Unto a bond that will not shear
Let us forget all that you fear
And keep the sinful and sublime..
The past’s a bridge that will not burn
But if remorse, with gentle touch
Should stir memories overmuch
Remember - there is more to learn..
Need I recount what you have won
The love, the tenderness, the gifts
That mark your journey’s eager shifts
Treasures that cannot be undone..
Nothing I say that’s not been said
You’ve come thus far, all safe n sound
Now set your sails for shores unbound
And revel in what lies ahead
If in recounting this, I sound
Upbeat and gung-ho, I must plead
The knowledge that one day indeed
Your destiny, you’ll say you’ve found
Unattainable, a grace
Not from this world, you do possess
So step forward, and let God bless
You, as you two embrace..
H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y , S O W M Y A !!!!
