To a very special friend – On this your special day
There are things I’d like to tell you – Words I want to say
First of all Happy Birthday – For you’ve been working hard
Soon there will be a swimming pool – For that big hole in the yard!!
You love your book club – And all your friends who attend
With authors Miller, Quindlen & Lamb – And the hours of pleasure you get to spend
It’s really about sharing – And love is what you’re all about
Helping others, be it work or play – Vanita, you’re the best, no doubt!!
It’s truly amazing how all of this took place – Starting with Greg and Eileen
Hilary, Geoff, Karen and Pete – With Mike and me completing the scene
Like does attract like – And that certainly describes our group
When you add up the children – We truly have a large troupe!!
You and Joel are blessed – With three daughters who are quite engaged
Very bright and very special – Especially for their young age
I smile recalling last year – When they did the glamour shot
To surprise you on your birthday – It was not their favorite spot!!
So dear friend Happy Birthday – And may you have many more
And with your energy level – We’ll continue having fun galore
I wish for you continued happiness – As the years go by
And many, many more birthdays – For you and Joel your loving guy!!
