Some have to fight for survival,
From the moment they arrive on this earth;
Some have to battle to make it,
From the very minute of their birth.
That was you, our baby boy,
Called to fight from the very start;
Doctors called it Ventricular Septal Defect,
We called it a ‘Broken Heart’.
Fast forward 4 years to today,
That Hero we celebrate once more;
One who stared death eyeball to eyeball,
Who’s living out all that God has in store.
Your broken heart is broken no more,
Your “zipper” scar you wear with pride;
It shouts out how good and great your God is,
The One in Whose grace you reside.
Happy Birthday Heart Warrior, our Little Champ,
Live loud, live loved, live blessed;
May your testimony shine for all to see,
By God’s grace you’ve overcome, passed the test.
