Can’t believe that little boy who used to love to sit on my shoulder to see the world is standing shoulder to shoulder today. The guy who used to sit at the back of the car and snore his way around is driving us around today. May be I am growing old and you are growing up today . There are loads of songs that come to my mind but one specific probably does justice to the time that gone by and the time that is infront of you and may a short poem ….
From the land of beer to the American skies,
Wonderful soul was born and his spirit flies.
As time unfurls your canvas to the sky,
Swiftly have the “Sixteen years” danced by.
From the mystique of the Alpine ranges to Taj Mahal’s grace,
You carry wonderful stories to your heart’s embrace.
As the huge sky above may your aspirations soar,
May success accompany every challenge you seek to explore.
As the flicker of sixteen candles light your way,
I pray for a future where your dreams come to play.
As you carry your heritage with a tapestry so grand,
Praying that guides you wisdom hand in hand.
Happy 16th Birthday , a milestone so dear,
Let there be laughter and lots to cheer.
As you blow the candles and make a wish
May life’s greatest treasures be your cherished dish.
