Just shy of Christmas you entered the world
A baby, like Jesus, with hope that unfurled
In twenty five years the Earth it has changed
Need for love and repentance still it remains


Great visions Man’s seen with light from His star
Still we continue to struggle and war
Each child is precious, all life a gift
Desperation causes deep fraternal rifts

Sean's 1st Birthday May 1994 001

In this holy season of peace on Earth
Pause to acknowledge your birthday’s sweet mirth
Struggle eternal but the prize is great
Pray we find strength in love rather than hate
