You are like a walking sunshine,
Illuminating our paths wherever we go;
You are like a full moon,
Sucking up the darkness so we all could see;
Your life has been a life of service to us.

We angered you so many times you lost count,
Yet in love you chastise us;
Teaching us always to look to the cross;
God’s way the only way you know.

We should celebrate you everyday
But this day is a special one;
A year added as you journey,
Looking forward to the day you’ll never have to work;
‘Cos Mum it’ll be our turn
To give back everything you’ve given.

Happy Birthday sweet mother,
It feels great that you call me son;
A good one forever I’ll be to you.
