The Fireworks Are for You

One score and four years ago,

the earth welcomed your soul.

While I did not know you then,

I know you now as my friend.

So for the few years I may have missed,

Happy belated, best wishes, you get the gist.

But what I really mean to say,

Although this may be your day,

The celebrations mark not another year gone by,

but another year you’ve been in my life.
