"This is the day of the coming of you"

Happy Birthday

This is the day you came to join us here
Whose yearly anniversary we mark
Remembered as when a comet came near
A close encounter with a scythe of spark
As welcome interruption of the night
By something more important than we knew
This is the day of the coming of you

Sometimes you wonder about all the fuss
How much of it is heat how much is light
And if you ever gave permission to
Anyone that you should be sent to us
Yet now we would not be whole without you
And so we know in our hearts it is right
That you came as this shooting star we see

To burn through the sky your own answer why
A bridge of light marks your trajectory
Your fireworks blazing a trail of day
Where customary cloud has burned away
To show you really are a shooting star
Something far more important than you knew
This is the day of the coming of you
