I never thought this day would come.
It isn’t just another date,
this one that’s almost here.
It is the very special day
we’ve waited for all year.

Yes, it will be your birthday soon
and we will celebrate.
This is a very happy time
and I can hardly wait.

And maybe you can eat some cake,
a little ice cream, too.
As for that candle shaped like 1,
I’ll blow it out for you.

I never thought this day would come
or if you would survive.
With all the troubles that you’ve had
I’m glad you are alive.

The doctors at the hospital
did all they could and more.
Because of them you’re here today,
a miracle for sure.

And now you are a healthy girl
with years ahead of you.
I’ll blow that candle out but know
that my wish has come true.
