    Dear child,
    Before your days, I hope you don't retire.
    Before your set time, I hope you don't lose this fire.
    Dear child,
    I hope you don't listen to what they will say
    They'll show you your weaknesses, that's cool but neither will they show you the way.
    Dear child,
    I hope you hold firmly whatever you are taught,
    A time would come, Life would give you sausages that I hope you wouldn't burn.
    Dear child,
    I hope you work tirelessly hard,
    Waking up every morning to a table distorted with candle wax.
    Dear child,
    I hope you grow in the pattern that the Lord wills,
    And that He directs your path with a light that would never cease.
    Dear child,
    I hope you learn how to love with your heartbeat,
    Even when the odds are against your earnest wish.
    Dear child,
    I hope you learn to live with them,
    Even when their actions get to your head.
    Dear child,
    Someday, I hope you find the love of your life,
    The one who would heal you of your every need.
    Dear child,
    I hope you have enough good rests.
    I hope you find happiness.
    Dear child,
    I hope you remember this,
    It's a little welfare from six feet.
