A Soldier-like Salute to Mr. Bush

Best Wishes for a Happy 60th Birthday to our President

Sixty candles on his cake
standing tall to celebrate
three-score years this man has run
in the human race.

Soldier-like each candle stands
paying homage to a man
who has sworn allegiance to
protect our human rights.

Waxing eloquent they speak
of this one world leaders seek.
Candles, that invite his wish,
wear their blazing crowns.

And the fire on their heads
speak of grace that God has shed
on the life of he who serves
in his oval room.

Father God, for George we pray
on this most auspicious day.
Grant him wisdom, health and strength
for the years to come.

* George W. Bush will turn 60 on July 6, 2006
