I feel blessed waking up every day to your voice and shouts
My baby is a super celebrity and she doesn't chase the clouts
With her swift and fast legs, she knows all the routes
Her energy is unrivalled and come on, we don't do the stouts
It's nothing but a blessing to call you mine
If you were to create a cryptocurrency, I would always mime
I've watched you grow these past two years and I'm impressed
Impressed with your smartness and uncommon traits
So special that it makes you stand out as everyone watches in awe
You are the answer to every prayer prayed regarding the kind of child we wanted
God was intentional about you as He carved you specially
Happy birthday to you, my love, my popsicles and my heartbeat
Your growth would always be easier and your strength daily renewed
God bless your paths and keep you safe in good health all round
Happy 2nd my love and more years to come for you...
I always wake up happy whenever I know I would see you
Nothing has been done out of obligation to you but out of pure love
To know you is to love you and I love every inch of you
You are a delight to every heart and you capture every heart
Your tender voice and tantrums make me laugh sometimes
You are every inch special and I wouldn't want it any other way
Oh! How I love you and I want to watch you grow even more
Thank you for lighting up my world and giving us reasons to smile
Thank you for coming to our abode as we watch you grow into the woman you desire
We will dedicate our lives to making your dreams come true
I love you my sweet little angel...my princess...my very own
Happy birthday, love.
TO THE BIG TWO
From the prompting of your birth
To watching you grow from feebleness to strength,
You have grown past the challenges of infancy,
Your presence alone is ecstasy,
You are an embassy,
filled with serenity in adequacy.
Your existence is a fulfilment on its own
Your energy is compared to none,
you've got your battery full at all times,
Never to be caught unfresh, uncharged or discharged.
Many wished for it too but
you have been graced to have it in full
so we make a toast to the big two!
To the big two,
we look through and through
and we found that God's promises are true,
To the big two, we search deep within,
we found that His tenderness and loving-kindness are forever new,
with our strength renewed,
we call on the dew
to bless this day with drips of glory,
we call on the sun to shine
as we celebrate a sunshine.
To the big two, we raise our glasses and cheer to a bigger and better you,
to the big two, we cheer to an existence void of rue,
we wish you live and love and continually spread love too,
we hope you don't stop being real and true,
we cheer to a better version of you,
we cheer to a more lively and energetic you,
we cheer to the bright future in view
Happy big two, Oluwadarasimi
