May God Bless You

 My friend’s birthday, 
 friend of long time,
one from childhood.

 While thinking of a way 
to wish one who lives 
thousand miles away.

recall the schooldays 
 when we used to sing 
Happy Birthday.

 The birthday girl
stood on the dais’
wearing a new dress.

 face gleaming with joy
as we sing 
Happy Birthday To You.
May God bless you!

We stand excited 
anxious to receive 
the chocolates.

Good old days!
keep coming back 
 and light up 

the otherwise 
dull life with 
glee and cheer.
