On this day of birth, I will look back and see,
And tell of all the love that was given to me.
It was not long ago, nor much time to certain eyes,
That I was a child, who would receive many a surprise.
But the greatest gift ever given to me,
Was the love that would make me to be.
Looking back I can tell and remember of many a reply,
That would build in me and within, my strength solidify.
Though the years have come and given us leave.
I will never forget those within my family,
Who have loved this child and have formed my eyes,
I will remember all of them, for they are my prize.
To them I owe all of what I am to be,
For they made me be who I am to be, Me.
