MAY GOD BLESS YOU ON YOUR BIRTHDAY DEAR DAVID
As you all know, David will be celebrating his 21st birthday on Dec 28.
A special birthday for a very special once-in-a-lifetime guy who has profoundly touched our hearts and given us an immeasurable amount of joy with his stupendously enrapturing singing;
and raced our pulses with his smouldering good looks and show-stopping smiles;
a guy with a vision of the world peculiar to himself in the face of the grim and grey music world in which we now live;
an uplifting inspiration in a cynical world with his doggedly perseverance even in the face of self-doubt.
All that by the age of 21.
Let us be thankful and rejoice in celebrating him and the presence of such a being living in our midst.
Now that he will be leaving us soon for 2 years to take on a full-time religious mission, there is all the more reason to celebrate him: for his strength of character and his steadfastness in his beliefs.
Let us keep the David-spirit alive by our forever love.
Let us pray that he will be kept safe and warm in God’s hands.
Let us hope that he will come back to us after he has done God’s work.
I have written him a birthday message on behalf of AAM, in a birthday card which I handed to Akang to be hand-delivered to Janey of FOD to be placed into David’s hands at the Santa Rosa VIP on Dec 14. Thank you to these lovely ladies for making it possible.
Below are pics of the 10 1/2″ by 10 1/2″ card and our birthday poem to David:
Poem for David
Time has swiftly flown many months and so have you
Far away from us to take on another amazing cue
- Remember that you have taken with you our willing hearts
Don’t want them back just want you here again to energise us anew
We understand much of God’s work you ardently want to do
But do not forsake us, our love will never go askew
- Please remember that though we are many miles apart
There’s nothing that will stop us from joining your longest queue
It is your your 21st birthday soon your desires and wishes to renew
So sad we are unable to embrace you in the same venue
- Do not forget that, of us you are now an integral part
Birthday prayers we are sending up and not just a few
We pray that the sky is the limit for your music and you
We pray you do not turn your back on us and the world, refuse
- God has lovingly placed you in all the world’s heart
And He has divinely coloured you in His hue.
