You, dear child, are a flower –
A dazzling concoction of scent and hue,
Deeply passionate as a rose,
Bright and full as a hydrangea.
You will one day be a tree
With deep roots, strong arms,
And comforting shade –
A blessing to all you shelter.
You will always be a river –
Continuously changing and flowing
Past obstacles, through time,
Until you reach the sea.
Above all, dear child, be the sun.
Spread light. Give life.
Have joy. Speak truth.
Shatter the darkness with love.
