Happy Birthday Bro’

You came into this life-

An illuminating light

Something we all enjoyed

During your time so bright

You left us all to early

A void never to be filled

We laugh and share

Your tall stories still

In your three lads you live on

Raised by mum on her own

All married now, tall and proud

Bloody hell they can be loud

You went far to early

A life snuffed out and gone

Wherever you may be our kid

They’ll no doubt be a song

You would have been 72 today

So we’ll raise a glass of port and say

Happy birthday brother

Have a good day
