My thoughts are special on this November night.
Tomorrow is your birthday, I hope things go just right.
My wish for you is simple, not for wealth or fame,
Just that God will touch your life and help you win life's game.
I wish for food upon your table, and for strength to
keep you able,
Clothes to wear to church on Sunday, peace at home, even on Monday.
For husband's love, children's understanding and not quite so much
You deserve the best in life, you've known way too much strife.
Because I love you, sister dear, I hope your birthday's
happy this year.
