Please baby come and do not tarry
Come soonest you can but do not hurry
But to help you and this tough world marry
Let me write you the things you should carry.
Don’t forget to come with your heavenly smile
It will help you make your enemies a stepping tile
Leave not your inborn joy and your laughter file
You might need to show it out after walking for a mile.
I need you to come with all the strength you’ve got
The kind of strength that U kicked with in my maternal pot
Come singing the victors’ song like when the warriors fought
And became the distinctive winners of their territory’s plot.
Please pumpkin come along with peace and patience
Because I won’t promise silver spoons and indulgence
But some vicious vexing and volts of valid vengeance
Though am at ease, I know you have the right essence.
Most of all don’t miss to come with the divine hope
That will help you see beyond the mountainous slope
When the clouds have dimmed and all knowledge is a flop
When sanity and courage would have all closed shop.
