You came into my life with your light
To create a bond of beauty and laughter.
You came into my life with your joyful heart
And the songs of virtue and character.

Because you call me friend,
I will listen when nobody else will listen—
I will not judge,
But wipe your tears with my tender words.

And today, on your birthday,
I see behind you, all your memories;
I see before you, all your goals;
I see around you, all who loves you;
And within you, I see all you need.
