Birthday! An auspicious day!
Reminds the flow of time -
In every house in everyone’s life!
The day comes following yearly cycle,
That’s how people grow!
As children becomes young
And young becomes older,
Comes another birthday! An auspicious day!
Let it come with a new tune,
With a new message of the dawn,
As you (one) age(s) gracefully
Fulfilling the pursuit of love and knowledge!
Leading to happiness and prosperity!
Keeping the child inside ever alive
With the fruits of all past years!
