Sts.Peter & Paul Prayer Group, Mississauga, Canada
(Former Indian Olympic Hockey Player)
God gave a gift to the world when you were born
a person who loves, who cares,
who sees a person’s need and fills it,
who encourages and lifts people up,
who spends energy on others
rather than himself,
someone who touches each life he enters,
and makes a difference in the world,
because ripples of kindness flow outward
as each person you have touched, touches others.
Born with a hockey stick, a sportsman par-excellence
An Olympic star.. shot to glory in every sense
you made proud your state Goa and country India
The Lord brought you back for His Vineyard from the sport arena
For His kingdom He made you an ardent helper
by changing your life from Goal-Keeper to Soul-Keeper
Rachel is your adorable wife next to none
Rajeev and Ramona are your talented children
‘Love God and thy neighbour’ is your household passion
Your outstanding love for the prayer group with no comparison
Serving community thru’ your talents without expectation
How wonderful is your untiring ambition
Your commitment to the Lord deserves all salutation!
Your every breath whispers "Mi Corazon"
that amazing hymn echoes in every zone
If you look into our hearts, you will come to know
how much asset of your love is!
In our hearts, in our souls
In our eyes and in our minds
May you always stay in them!
That’s our birthday wish, for you our love
Congratulations to you, our evergreen friend,
Birthday wishes to you, we send
You look good for your age, we could say,
But you look good to us any day!
May this birthday be your best birthday ever,
full of light and laughter,
a fireworks explosion of joy.
May this birthday live in your memory forever,
creating happiness and satisfaction
whenever you remember it.
May the Lord Bless you
and make His face shine upon you!
Happy, happy 60th birthday!
Happy, happy diamond birthday!
Hearty wishes & blessings from:
