Daughter you were nothing like me at the age of seventeen
Daughter you are a hybrid of the lovers I’ve known all my life you’re a new human being
And so everything you do is a cosmic catalyst
You are the equilibrium of space and us

You always ask me if I had a time machine
Would I change anything my lovers or my life
But destiny gave me you a universe beyond imagination

Daughter you are the circumstance of all the conspiring of forces beyond my control
You are the perpetual residual of myself
Through screams and cries tears and tears

From my body flesh of my own flesh
Soil of my own soil the earth let me create
Before I am dust and memory
Daughter of this I’m proud
