Days pass us by
As we sing the same old song til sunset
We go beyond our threshold
Trying to achieve our ambitions
A few ways down the road
Our resilience starts to fade away
Our limbs begin to give in
And the passion becomes monotony
It’s all in vain without hope.
You gave us a purpose
A reason to wake up and face the wind
A reason to step up and face the grind
You gave us a new perceptive of life
Different friend circles
Different way of ending our day
Coming home to a hopeful face
A heart full of innocence, joy and love.
Today I say a prayer
May you be the best of your type
May you become the type of girl that slays
May your story be typed in the oldest history books
May you not become a typical woman
I pray that you will always be of substance
A girl that paints hope in every sphere of life
A princess for eternity
Keeping all the values that I teach you
Keeping all negative vibes at bay
And always keeping your game flawless.
I thank God for you
Always and forever.
