The Birthday Song
Eight years ago,
In a wondrous show,
This little girl joined our loving band.
As the days flew by,
She asked us why
No unicorns lived in our land.
And we told her,
“They’re just basking
In that glow
Your smile casts for everyone to see.
And they’re waiting
For you to grow
Into the thoughtful woman you will be.
For it takes time
To reach our prime
And understand how precious life can be.
When this we learn,
Our unicorns will turn
And join us in our joyous revelry!
So don’t you worry
When things get busy
And troubles cast dark shadows in your way.
Each hug we share,
Each time we care,
Makes a loving gift of every day!
So dream your dreams
Along your streams
And treasure friends and family in your heart.
And as your days
You’ll find more unicorns than you may chart,
And loved ones who will ever lift your heart.
