Light shone on me in the earliest youth
I grew up and learned the truth,
Crazy enough life may laugh,
At the things you say, at your made up tasks.
At age 12 they started to make sense
They started to bend and mend my tend,
16 I smile at the previous works
And stop in my tracks at your memorable smirks
Now you watch with eagle eyes
The child you birth with pride, in a world of disguise
She distinguishes herself from a hazy demise
From one gaze of your eyes, she knows she can break down and cry
To my mother and father too;
I hope one day I grow up and be like you.
I owe you.
