By Softajayi and Oludam
I love you
You are the most precious
You are a blessing I count twice
You are my strength
My joy and laughter
A treasure I can’t let go

No limitations, you are strong
You are young, vibrant and strengthened
Labour now, don’t be lazy
Focus on your dreams
Not the ladies
Get your priorities right
You are strong enough for the fight

You are mine, I am yours
Learn from my mistakes
My misdeeds are classes to you
It will be shameful if you repeat same mistakes I made.
I love you

Listen to your dad from the blood
Try to settle things well with the creator
Select the best not the mud
And make choice that will favour your mum and me
Just come with the talents you can manage
And be the reality of the image in me

The world may look smooth
I tell you dear, it’s just a mirage
The world you are coming is a real war front
But cheers, when things are hard
Put trust in your creator
And i will always be by your side

Not to lie you, my child in the womb
To be a man is never easy
But your determination keeps you going
Knock until it opens
Never retreat until you have won…

Don’t give my wife problem
Kick slowly… My unborn child
