On Robin's Birthday
all you have done for me
in giving to me
the loveliest bride,
the perfect woman,
the best friend
I could ever have asked or hoped for.
for hearing my heart's cry 42 years ago
and thank you
for giving her in marriage to me 39 years ago.
And thank you
for every day with her since then,
days that could not have been
so warm and loving,
Please bless her abundantly on her birthday...and every day.
Surround her and infill her with love.
Wake her in beauty and send her to sleep in peace.
May she feel as loved today as she makes everyone around her feel her love,
in Jesus' name, amen.
