When a child is born
In the galaxy, a star dies
Blazing in an inferno of vibrant colour
Reflected when she first opens her eyes

When a child first laughs
When she giggles, when she smiles
A new ray of sun bursts alive
Stretching across the horizon for miles

When a child first walks
New paths come unravelled
Winding and twisting to forever
Guiding her to a world less travelled

When a child first talks
Her words clumsy and unclear
Stumble and stutter across the room
We hush, for a voice of the future is here
