On the day you were born there was a plan.
Some might say God.
Others claim that fate had her complex way.
Perhaps it was just our simple approach,
as we played our game of life to win
and bring you here today.
This exact spot
at your place in this world.
Whoever is responsible,
whatever flows and ebbs of time
have placed you gently
onto this sand at my feet,
I raise my glass
into the vast blue sky
higher, then higher still
for I am thankful for you,
and ever grateful to all things
Happy Birthday Dearest Daryl.
