May It Be

It is the annual remembrance
of a family’s hopeful day
a project in the making
had finally seen the light of day
Two people took the lead
and others helped along the way
to nurture this endeavor
through love and work and play
I’m ever grateful for the start
and for a strong finish I do pray
for the project was the life I have
a gift I’m thankful for this day

So to those two who made me
and to the God who gave me breath
I love you dearly always
from my heart’s deep hidden depths
And to the one who gave my life
the greater meaning it now finds
to my wife and true companion
what a joy to know you’re mine
There are many more to mention
our own projects to name two
I am who I am this special day
because with me you shared your you

Lord help me honor this great gift
Is my birthday prayer this morn
May I be the man you hoped for
on the day that I was born
