    Am I worthy of you?
    I try to be
    A true light of my life
    Often relighting the candle within me

    As your day of birth grows near
    I ponder the wishes you will make
    and the hopes that I have
    as I light the candles on your cake

    You tend to make your wish so fast
    barely allowing any wax to run down a candle
    But my heart will melt plenty as you smile
    and devour all the slices you can handle

    I am in awe of the person you've become
    the hurdles you've had to surmount
    how hard you've worked, the many blessings
    you've bestowed upon me, too numerous to count

    You've grown to be so kind and dependable,
    with a heart spun out of pure gold
    Time has gone by so fast, I look up and there's
    a young man that my eyes now behold

    And so, you see, I want to be sure I'm worthy
    of what you aim to be, and of all that you are
    cheering and supportive of that drive, as you strive
    for your own shining signature star

    Support

    Lawd! We need that support! Even our families sometimes don't want to give it because we are moving forward. They think we are leaving them and in a way we are, but to blaze a path requires that we leave so others can follow--well done--Amun-Ra :wave:

    Well gee, Rich, you humble me, thanks a million for the warmth within your response.
    Support is so important, when we move forward we still are in need of it. Thank you Amun Ra.
