She's 16 - Poem by Obed dela Cruz

Tell me, what could be more exciting for her
Than to know that she has turned sixteen today?
A girl whose face is like the brightness of day
Yet heart is so pure like a crystal water.

Please, I want to know her secrets, her desire
And the things that make her laugh or blush to smile
Because she’s a princess, one who can inspire
Like this lovely poem that makes you worth the while.

And if you’ll ask what would be my wish right now
My prayer, my hope is that inside and out
She’ll be more fairer, a soul who does not pout
A spirit, before God, makes a graceful bow.

For just like the rose planted in a garden
Which I could not pick until the right season
I want her to keep the freshness of Eden
That pleases her Maker as the years move on.
