My Dearest Child

You will be born against your will
and life will start for you, my child
A life you never asked for
A life you might never want

You’ll learn to walk and talk and run
but you will also fall
And you will learn to rise again
no matter what it costs

And then you’ll have to learn to love
and you’ll get hurt, but love again
Your heart will break and you will cry
but you will never stop to love

And one day you will have to leave
you’ll leave this life you never wanted
Against your will, just like
the day that you were born

Cry, my child, cry
For life isn’t always white
Cry, my child, cry
One day you will be free
