Stars sprinkle the dark, moonless night
Shining for those without the light.
A reminder for those who need
Hope from the heart’s own seed.
No one knows what lies ahead
Our futures cannot be read.
There will be pain and tears
There will be burdens and fears.
But remember this, O little one
That these don’t mean life’s done.
’cause you’ll find happiness and joy
Not just from your favorite toy.
There will be memories you’ll cherish
And nothing can make them perish.
Because this is your own life
Not one formed under a knife.
You will fall stumble and hard,
Get cut by a glass shard.
Yet do not be disheartened, child
For these things will become mild.
Trials that will make you stronger
Increasing your strength, wider and longer.
Trust that everything has a purpose
Don’t ever think that you’re worthless.
Everything happens for a certain reason
In every high and low season.
