HRH the son’s birthday!

sunshine

Hello everyone! This week we’re celebrating HRH the son’s birthday – 25 years – hip, hip, hurray!!! Happy birthday, son and many happy returns of the day!

HRH the son

The time really went so fast
We can still remember all the years
His first words that gave us cheers
The first time he crawled and walked
The first time he rode his bicycle
His first day of school with a big bag
Karate, music, choir, kung-fu, guitar
When we reminisce them they bring tears

From primary years to senior years
He was showing some independence
Lots of friends, loves Maths and Science
Learns to drive, happy to have his license
Friends stayed overnight and had fun
Activities in school, soon time to leave
To another country to have his degree
We surely miss him but we had to let him go

wordless

Happy we all are
When the son rang and said
She said yes and soon they be wed
Gave her a charming sapphire ring
Lovely in her hands so they went-ahead

We are happy, Him Indoor and I
We can feel the son is so happy
We are happy he found his Sweetie
She’s very lovely, we all agree
They can plan their future, all coolly
We’re happy to share with you all
Something positive and exciting
The world is wonderful and brightly
