As her eyes reflect, the azure sky

And time just seems to tumble by

She’s still a child, so full of wonder

That no man, ever, shall put asunder

Let her breathe, inhale the land

Reaching up, to the heavens, grand

Watching, as the clouds roam free

Then disappear beyond the tree

She sighs, at the beauty, shown above

And marvels, at the cooing, of a dove

She prays for man, may he find kindness

That God remove, his human blindness

And let him see, what she does see

Her Heaven, this, she knows to be

As through the day, she lives her dreams

For her God knows, it is she, he’ll redeem
