Liam, my Buddy, my Boy, my Man,
Where have the years escaped to;
A boy no longer yet my Boy always be,
Another Birthday, another year through.
Liam, my Buddy, my Boy, my Man!
Nineteen years, Birthday Blessings Son;
A lifetime ahead, the world to explore,
The road to untold adventures just begun.
Can a dad be more chuffed, or more proud,
Of a young man that before him stands;
A gentleman, a giant, a warrior of the Faith,
Growing stronger with the passing of time’s sands.
You are great, and will become greater still,
On the wings of your dreams you will soar;
With Jesus at the helm, you’ll impact the nations ,
Further, higher, deeper, more.
I am proud of the man you are becoming,
Like Daniel, stand alone if you must for the right;
Act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God,
He will sustain you, uphold you with His might.
So, Happy Birthday, Liam; hold your head up high,
To fulfil God’s plans, do all that you can;
Mom and I’ll be praying for and believing in you,
Liam, our Buddy, our Boy, our Man!
