42th Birthday Wishes

On this your very special day,
I’m sending you my best
Of wishes for another year,
Filled with true happiness.

Life is so swift,
The years fly fast;
We’re growing old,
This life won’t last.

Birthdays remind us
Life’s so sweet;
We take for granted
Those we meet.

Whenever I first met you,
My dearest, precious one;
You filled my world with warmth,
So radiant like the sun.

No other can take your place,
You are so dear to me;
How can I express myself?
A few lines for you to see

Cannot express the love
I truly have for you;
Yet I will still attempt
Whatever I can do.

To tell you what I feel
On this, your special day;
Yet thoughts, like birds do fly
Away from me today.

Yet I’ll attempt to write
Some little word, my dear;
Expressing on this day,
To show you how I care.

They say that life gets better
With every passing year;
But this one thing I know,
You’re growing ever dear.

To my heart I hold you close,
I’ll never let you go;
I made that promise, dear,
And I still love you so.

I ever cherish your life,
You are a gift to me;
It’s very obvious
For all that really see.

The happiness we share
I can’t forsake;
Not rain or cloud
Could ever break.

A birthday is a precious time
To stop and think of you;
A birthday is a special time
When thoughts come streaming through.

A Shakespeare or a Milton,
As you can simply see;
In writing these few lines
I cannot claim to be.

But I shall do my best
To send my wishes, dear,
A very happy birthday,
With expressions clear.

Three little precious words
That anyone can write;
Three little precious words
I’ll say it with delight.

I love you, I love you
On this your birthday;
I love you, I love you
No more can I say.

I’ll tell it near,
I’ll say it far,
I’ll make it clear,
You are my star.

Birthdays come,
And birthdays go;
But all year long
My love I’ll show.

For that’s the best gift
I could ever give,
To prove that my wish
Will truly live.

Long after the day
Of mirth is spent;
Long after the flowers
Have lost their scent.

My birthday wish
Will outlive them all;
Winter, spring,
Summer and fall.

May your days be filled
With everlasting joy,
That no man
Could ever destroy.

So as this day
Comes to a quick close,
Please accept
These words I compose.

Just meant for you
As you grow old;
Another year
Of life you’ll hold.

Think of the love
I have for you,
May it ever grow
To see you through.

Here’s wishing your year
Is filled with sweet song,
Love, peace and cheer
All the day long.

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
May my love be near
Every day of this year.

Happy birthday my dear,
From the depths of my heart;
I love you my dear,
Please accept this, my art.
