I have a gift for you, my grandpa says. With excitement, I jump up and down. So tiny and little, my feet make no sound. He has a box and it's wrapped with a bow. Someday, my dear, you will certainly know. Keep the box with you and never let go. This gift will guide you and it will protect. When it is open you can see the things you will never forget. Greater than any other gift, nothing will compare. Unwrap the box and you will see how I care. All of those times you should not have been alive, And should not have survived, It was me And the gift, Working out of sight. The one that I gave you so long ago. The prettiest one, that was wrapped with a bow. You have much work to do still, here in this life. This is a gift that can withstand all time. You can pass down the gift to your own down the line. It was given to me, and now I’ve given it to you. Stay strong and have courage, as we need you to do. There is no greater gift than the truest of love. Marching behind you, we push and we shove. Your wisdom is brimming, your light they'll try dimming. Do your greatest and make us so proud. Believe in the magic and keep passing it around. Do not be afraid, and hold close your gift. It’s been crafted with much care, I’m here to uplift. Remember me always, my grandpa says. No longer tiny and little, I’m fierce and I’m loud. When I stomp on the ground my feet do make a sound. With all of my force I shake and I scream, Energy swarms and it moves and I see. All of the things I was meant to see. With the power of the gift, I have so much more. It’s everything I’d ever need or could imagine. More than just one lifetime could fathom. Looking at the gift now, the box and the bow, I wrap it back up knowing what I know. Tie it so tightly, With all the love And care that I can, Now the box feels mighty, even more than before. Set it aside and wait patiently for the next, Now when it’s my turn I’ll give it to them too, When they most need it! When the day comes, with honor I'll tell Someday, my dear, you will certainly know. Greater than any other gift, nothing will compare. With the power of this gift, You will never be defeated. Keep the box close and always be aware. Untie the bow and you will see how I care.
