Your Sweet Soul

Here is this year’s birthday poem for my wife.
Your Sweet Soul

No words can suitably express
The gift you are to all of us;
No way to count the ways unless
We leave too many out, and thus

This minor gesture of our love
And gratitude for all you are,
Your kindness we’re unworthy of,
Your fun and varied repertoire,

Your generosity of heart,
Your skills at every kind of art,
Your patience with our petty woes,
You’re a channel where His mercy flows.

So on this commemoration
Of your worthy life’s foundation,
We hope to show you all the love that your sweet soul is due

Please let us warm your heart,
As we all play our part
To demonstrate this day that we’re so glad to all know you.
