Asking was to hear what Father says
About all the longings in my heart
And so I asked for a man like you
And he gave me much more than I sought.
I asked for sweetness; he gave me a cake of many distinct flavours
I asked for peace; he gave me riches vested with rest
I asked for friendship; he gave me laughter coated in loyalty
I asked for motivation; he gave me a clock that always ticks
I asked for healing; he gave me a heart that beats for mine
I asked for hope; he gave me a river that always flows
I asked for kindness; he gave me a mansion of compassion
I asked for bravery; he gave me the courage of angels
I asked for guidance; he gave me a room handsomely lit up
I asked for a man after his heart; he gave me another David
I asked for honour; he gave me the glory of the industrious woman
I asked for discernment; he gave me the presence in my spirit
I asked for understanding; he gave me the voice of reason
I asked for passion; he gave me a man with direction
I asked for respect; he gave me elegance in word and deed
I asked for love, and he gave me a night filled with stars.
You’ve been everything and more
That I requested as I grew up
As you grow older to stay younger
May our stars smile bigger and brighter.
Happy birthday, Tai Nee’s Wolverine!
