As i express my heart in more than words,
Know that i write this in words and colors,
For the love and blessings,
And joy your friendship brings.

Are you joyful on this pleasant morning,
That reminds you of the time that marks your beginning?
That reminds you of that fragile hour,
You filled the world with the cry of your arrival.

I ask but one thing, beloved friend,
That you be a person of conduct and sound mind,
That your heart may gallantly clings,
To a belief in beauty through all wrong.

I ask but one thing o! Beloved,
That never shall i find you wasted,
As a person  or wake to find you falter,
On this path we tread that only matters.
