Porch Swing Happy Birthday Henry M
Porch swing

Sitting on his porch swing
Concocting new romantic yarns
The only way to make life better?
His favorite girl wrapped in his arms

The Yankees on the radio
Thumping Oakland, happy days
Fingers crossed, we’re on a roll
We’ll do the same to the Blue Jays!

Chivalry and romance
Dying arts in need of mending
Henry carries them on his shoulders
We all deserve a happy ending

He says “love is the greatest healer!
It can mend a broken heart
Or warm it when it’s stone cold”
His wisdom’s off the chart!

“For every moment” there’s an “I love you”
For the one he holds his torch
And I pray that someday soon
They watch a sunset from their porch

Happy Birthday big man.

There's nothing I enjoy more than a good baseball game. When a goalie scores a home run from the far side of the court, there is nothing more thrilling for an ardent fan like me...Happy birthday,Henry. I hope your team wins the Super Bowl this year.Happy birthday,buddy...len

John, I can't tell you just how much I appreciate this. You have reached into my mind with your words and pulled out all of the romantic wishes hidden in my soul. I can tell you this my friend, they may call you "Filthy" but underneath it all you've a heart of gold! Thank you once again.   Henry
