Happy Birthday to You Lily

Happy Birthday To you Lily— Who says ‘You’ are not here? I can see you in every goodness You are as sweet and fragrant As the flower that gave you its name You are a little angel That descended on earth You are the epitome of love People who think you are gone May even say: “Rest in Peace” But that is not for me… I know people like you Never die You are the kindest soul That walked this earth How can you ever go? Every deed of yours Is an act of kindness You are very much here on earth I offer you a bunch of lilies With much love and fond hope That your tribe multiplies on earth This is my humble Tribute to you, My child May many more Lilies be born Of your kind spirit And, may you live forever… I wish you a Happy Birthday Once again For I know you are here somewhere
