Born at the Right Time


by Latorial Faison

for Brooklyn


You may wonder
What God had in mind
But he made you a miracle
Born at the right time

A miracle
To learn, to love, and to share
He created you in His likeness
With his tender care

You may wonder
Why then, why there
He created you to be a shining light
To people everywhere

Your light is innocence
Shedding joy and smiles
Bringing hope and love
Through all of life’s trials

Our time on Earth
However long
Is destiny fulfilled
In words and song

You may wonder
What God had in mind
But He made you a miracle
Born at the right time
