May I invite you at my table
Let me serve you food and wine
Let me get my special plates,
my long legged crystals, my shiny silverware.
Because today is a special day
because today the sun came up,
because today the air filled our lungs with endless
amounts of air,
because today children were born from happy parents,
and because today I meet some friends.
Because today is a special day because no-one died and
Because parrots repeat what you tell them
and because there are cookies in the shape of flowers
This is a day worth celebrating, a day worth happy faces,
Worth our best dress our silk stockings our gold green
