Maria Cecilia San Juan
For years I haven’t grown, but bid my time
For one day I know, in spring I’ll shine
In avenues unknown, but will unfold in my eyes
To bring about freedom, and with birds I’ll fly.
Today, I start my life welcoming the light
Reach out my hands for friends in sight
With smiles that touch another’s life
Sprinkling the day with my warm hands
Each day I live is worth my time
With words of comfort extended to everyone
Pat on the back, assuring things will be fine
Are returned tenfold, with trust that warms my heart
The little cheers are a crown on my head
A laurel of knowledge, a gift from above
Achieved through sacrifice, patience through time
A real knowledge, that friendship is a gold mine.
