Happy Birthday Daddy
Adrian Thorpe Harrold
A moment ago a baby but now much stronger
How I wish it could have taken longer
A toddler with a blankie and then new math
Childhood lights your own path
Don’t forget those who loves you and were left behind
No matter what, you’ll always shine
At any early age you knew strife
Let them be a milestone for your life
Now, don’t look back but forward to the sky
Lift your head and countenance high
The future is bright and clear
Your heritage is strong, have no fear
Be special and live each day
As you know, that’s His way
Oh, how you’ve grown!
