Father's Song - Verse 2

Spoken Words by Ayodele Ogundipe

Seems like yesterday

rn

When I cuddled you safe in my arms

rn

From the cradle of your mothers side

rn

Now today, I hold you close by my side

rn

From the foyer of the cathedrals aisle.

rn

Seems like yesterday

rn

When I wrote you a father’s song

rn

When the premiere of my love

rn

Was first sentenced in pages 

rn

Now today the bridge is reached

rn

In this shift of fate endeared.

rn

Yesterday I was called

rn

Father of a child

rn

Today ‘am called 

rn

Father of the bride

rn

Life is an onion that ever births new mysteries.

rn

And upon the farthest

rn

Miracle of fatherhood

rn

God bless the day 

rn

You were born 

rn

‘Cause with yesterday misplaced

rn

Today could only be a wishful thought away

rn

Now the sky is shining blue with peace

rn

And all the birds seem to be in love

rn

And with the justice of their obsessions fair

rn

Let your fate lead its way hence

rn

 

rn

So, beautiful princess here we go

rn

For here my steps must now reserve

rn

Beautiful jewel, there you go

rn

For there your knight awaits by his side

rn

Princess of my laughter

rn

Diadem of my fatherhood

rn

Be led forth in grace

rn

And let the heavens be your shade

rn

And in all the gait of precious tame

rn

Go on in fame of angelic same

rn

Kiss the sun goodnight at ease

rn

And I’ll receive it 

rn

On her behalf my second verse

rn

Cause I’d always love you on time my beloved child

rn

In every version of noble meaning.

rn

My Song, my prose, my daughter

rn

I love you.

rn
