A Birthday Prayer

If I were to offer a prayer today
And I knew that the powers that be
Would grant all the blessings for which I should
Most freely unto me

I would pray that I might in true wisdom and
Increase as the days go past
And be able to do some good deed every hour
That I could not have done in the last

If the fibre still holds in my life's slender cord
Thru another short year, may I say
I have cherished the good and all evil abhorred
When I read this a year from today
