You start so small
But with nutrients
You soon grow
And in no time we soon witness
Just how colourful and amazing
You truly are.
Flourishing we see you develop
Both physically and consciously,
Developing your own ideas
And building your own
Hopes and dreams so beautifully.
I see you grow,
From small acorns grow mighty oaks
And I hope that the love in you is so
Unconditional and available to all,
I hope that as you grow tall
Compassion and peace will be your call
And all the colours that you show
Will light up all the darkest days,
Like a rainbow in full glow.
I watch you grow
And I don’t need to learn to love you so,
It’s all ready there in the marrow of my bones
And I hope you are the light that shines
The life that understands and knows,
The importance of existence
And makes the very most of living,
As i watch you grow.
