Happy Birthday!



O who will walk a mile with me
Along life's merry way?
A comrade blithe and full of glee,
Who dares to laugh out loud and free,
And let her frolic fancy play,
Like a happy child, through the flowers gay
That fill the field and fringe the way
Where she walks a mile with me.


And who will walk a mile with me
Along life's weary way?
A friend whose heart has eyes to see
The stars shine out o'er the darkening lea,
And the quiet rest at the end o' the day-
A friend who knows, and dares to say,
The brave, sweet words that cheer the way
Where she walks a mile with me.


With such a comrade, such a friend,
I would fain walk till journey's end,
Through summer sunshine, winter rain,
And then?-Farewell, we shall meet again!

Happy Birthday, Kelly!

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Psa 1:3
