The Day You Are Born

Welcome Liam James Smith. The world is a better place because you are here.

The Day You Are Born by Alice Walker (part of it)
Oh, little ones
Who will one day
So much taller than us
Let us pledge
On your sweet heads
To make a better show
Of things
Than we have done.

Let us promise
To take courage
From the mysterious
Nature of your
Let us acknowledge
In all humility
That regardless of
Your status in life
It is we
Who are blessed.

We do not know the beginning or the end
We only see the middle of things
Which is our own life.

Perhaps you are a part of
The force
That is coming to help
Rearrange our wold
To make it better
We pray that this is

That you have come back
To help heal the confusion
You left behind
So many lifetimes

And that you come
Bringing all
We need
To get the job

Joy, Hope, Song.
