You were born to shine
and I say that not out of arrogance,
but out of parental love
seeing you take those baby steps,
and learning to walk on the road of life,
and picking yourself up
after all the hurdles and pitfalls.
You were born to shine.
Just don’t ever forget it.
You got the experience and scars to prove it.
just like the beautiful night sky
is a broad canvas
decorated with people like you.
You were born to shine,
and be unforgettable.
