Wildflowers are blooming
and vast brilliant stars are being born.
Welcome this child that dared to come to this world.
Her mother drawing the map, showing her the way.
Guiding her towards the light with
strength, affection, pain, and laughter.
Embrace life with all it has to offer you.
Every step is a prayer, every breath is a living proof.
Let them not be unsure and indecisive.
Touch this sacred, burning heart.
Kiss this warm, ageing body.
Love these tender, impatient lips.
