“Sheyi Shay,

The earth stands in awe of women, her strength, her love, her resilience and empathy.

Sheyi, you embody the definition of a woman, so what do I have to say on a day like this when I celebrate you?

I celebrate you today for your heart warming smiles

Watering the patched heart of lost humanity

Your voice, music breaking burden saddled with ties

Same voice that heralds the good news of times to come.

Days like this are not special because of the pomp and pageantry

days like this are special because you walked the earth

Let drums roll and music play

Let the young maiden’s dance

as we celebrate

let the young boys sing your praise

And teenage girls your feats emulate.

On days where I need inspiration

Upon you I gaze

You eyes hold beauty carved by the master craft

You neck stands as young bamboo

Sprouting with energy

Your eyes sparkle with love

Changing the mood of the downtrodden

One wish however prongs in my heart

this thought that linger, a deep longing

a desire that echoes in all eternity

granting this wish birth women of your kind

children grown in love to change the world.

Will you give me the chance to love you forever?
