Birthday Boy

Today is the day that I was born

Many years ago

The world recovering from war

Winter of the snow

The evil and the madness

Berlin bunker bombed

Cold war just beginning

Europe still entombed


All those years have passed us by

Russia still not free

Communism’s wickedness

Capitalism’s glee

We must deal with people as they are

Not how we wish them to be

We cannot sort out everything

But I can begin with me


The greatest gift that I received

My family and my faith

The community of childhood days

My friends my school my church

Then I wandered far off course

Taken from my home

But I found the path in adult years

Now Stirling is my home
