Birthday Prayers

For a wonderful friend and brother, on his birthday.
On your birthday,
My lips will only pray,
Every word I utter today,
Will be to grace this day.

May your eyes shine like glittering stars,
In your spirit, sunshine of goodness will immerse,
Your years are immeasurable like ever-flowing waters,
Every step you take will lead you to a higher class.

May your life represent God's best gift,
May God's grace be your catapult and lift,
May your ladder of favor never drift,
No weapon will give your happiness a shift.

Look up at the beautiful bright sky,
For your achievements are beyond its sigh,
Never think of any reason to cry,
For your happiness is not about 'how' and 'why'.
