Little child I’ve dreamed of you coming to this world. A part of me I’ve left behind for a darling boy or girl. It’s never even mattered just who and what you are, For you and I have lived before on a distant star. A place removed from time and space, the heavens some may say. A pact we made in distant days to meet again one day. As the time approaches, your life force beating strong. Anticipation fills me up I’ve waited for so long. I I wish for you your happiness, though clouds will come some days. Keep looking up, believe in love, and things will go the way That you and I had planned they would when we danced upon a star. Remember this, walk lightly now, and cherish who you are.
Little child, my little child, what will you teach to us? Compassion, hope, and friendship—Faith, belief, and trust. Little child, my little child a gift from way up high, I’ll give you all the best I have, then watch you as you take your wings and fly.
