To Mrs Inez Tatum


On your birthday, friends and family,

With the brightest smiles you ever see

Come to share your day with you


They say how wonderful you are

They may even call you a super star

As they talk about the good you do


Some would put you on a pedestal

And be at your every beck and call

Well . those may be just a few


But this birthday and the next 70 that follow

Will be different from the ones you had before

We will celebrate them by thanking God for you


For your love, your understanding and wisdom

And as one birthday goes, many more will come

But you will always stand firm and true


So Mommy, on this your special day

I raise my glass to you and say

Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns to you


May The Good Lord Continue To Bless You
