Look right here, sweet child of mine,
Your eyes so dark they swallow time,
The great unknown within your reach,
The One who knows will surely teach.
There is no need to fear the world,
It was built with love my sweet girl,
It's broken yes, and battered blue,
But now it's up to me and you,
To heal with hand and heart that's pure,
For only true love will endure.
Sometimes we see only what we want to see,
But trust me girl, that's not who you want to be,
Take heed to our words and keep open your eyes,
So you see what's before you and learn from the wise.
Your innocence in mama's bonnet,
Will someday be quite a sonnet,
Your voice will be heard from the top of the mount,
Just remember who loves you and what life's about.
