A Birthday Greeting


Dearest Sister!
I send you greetings on your birthday,
As another year has gone by its merry way.
You can now add another chapter to your past,
And I pray that you may add more to the cast.

When I was a lad, you guided me in many ways
And had patience through many trying days.
You had a loving heart full of exciting dreams,
A pleasant disposition bursting at the seams,
An untiring force that drove you on and on,
And a crown of sisterhood you always donned.
You are a remarkable sister in many ways
That eased my problems and brightened my days.
You were a ray of sunshine from Heaven above
And a dear sister to have and always love.

You see, a sister isn't always fussy and stern,
But it was one of those things I had to learn.
You always listened and were understanding
And had ideas and advice that were outstanding.
Still, I hold fond memories of you in my heart
That no one on earth can force me to part.
I wish you happiness on this day, and every year
To add to your Life Memoirs that were always near.
I thank the Lord for having a sister so dear,
And announce it on your Birthday for the world to hear.
