You are the apple of my eye, in you I live my life anew;
And as you reach for the sky, I too take fresh steps few.
You live, I breathe fresh air; you achieve, I richly applaud;
You color each rung and stair, while I undo every step flawed.
No more are you to be kept away, no more will I allow you to hide;
You are meant to shine and sway, to the rhythm of life with pride.
Come, come, dear, in you I live all my dreams and set new goal;
You are my future and I will give you the inheritance of control.
You are meant to rise and shine, to dance and feel as happy as a lark;
Your soul is whole too and from mine; daughter, keep bright the spark.
