I know you’ve heard these words and more
so many times before;
but they didn’t come from us to you,
which makes them mean much more.
Though you are very steadfast,
yet susceptible to change;
your kind demeanor unsurpassed
by recognition gained.
Your presence is always noticed by
those whose dreams you have surpassed;
and you always find the time to help
someone else to heights that last.
We give to you this gift of love,
from your peers and scores of friends;
and it’s just a little token,
for health and happiness to no end.
