Before I met you, I must confess
life as I knew it was one big mess.
The revolution was stalled, my cigars were wet
my uniforms tattered, my pants were split.
And try as I may, at every attempt
my beard never failed, to look so unkempt.
But now that’s all changed, I’m sharp as a tack
save for the metal, embedded in my back.
I’m no longer lost, and out of control
allowing life’s bumps to exact their toll.
Instead with you, my life is complete
any problems we face, together we’ll beat.
So on this day, as we celebrate
another year past, a memorable date.
Know that I love you, Te amo
no matter what happens, I’ll never go.
And in any language, I’m happy to say
¡Feliz Cumpleaños!, Happy Birthday!
