Someday

Tiny hands
Feel a beating heart
This underwater world
Amazes you
Reach out-
Touch the soft wall
Through the garkness
You hear the outside world
A world you want so desperately
To know, to be a part of, somehow
Someday-
You wonder what it'll be like
Apart from all the voices
You hear
Just outside these walls.
Turn a somersault
Anticipating the thrill
Of a new world to discover
You know it's soon
You know it's coming
You know it's for you
Somehow

The question remains
Will you ever know?
Or will you be snuffed out
Like a candle that no one ever saw
A flame that flickers uniquely
One that is completely your own.
Yet some don't think to give you the chance
To glow, to step out, to emerge into this world
Someday

But the answer is pending
For now, unseen
But I desperately hope
I will see your tiny flame
As it blooms into a bigger, bolder one
So I hope
You will have the chance to live
And show this world what you're made of
Show them that you are worth seeing
You are worth loving
You are worth living
Somehow

Even though you are small
Even though right now you are unknown
They will see you
They will not be able to imagine life without you
When they see you
Someday

So I will wait
Ever so patiently
Anticipating the thrill
As you enter this world
I hope you will be
Given the chance to live
Because I can't wait to find out
Who you really are.
Someday.
