My Precious Lil Hannah

My Precious Lil Hannah

My lil star had a star
Magnificent and beautiful you truly are
One day you'll be bigger than that Montana star
For your illustrious light will shine far
Marvin did it for Anna
So here my dear precious lil Hannah
Five months this 2014 Feb
I don't know what kind—political or entertainment
But you will be a celeb
I can also visualize you as a senator
Congress woman, actress, musician, doctor or lawyer
It's ironic your momma was five months also
The last time I held her
You look like her and she looks like me
Since my blood runs through your veins
I guess you can say I am you and you are me
You're truly diving and heaven sent
Maybe you'll be the first African-American female president
My precious lil Hannah
I pray for you like Subannah
You'll be exalted and anointed like Hosanna
Greatness will be your prophesy like that son
You'll shine brighter than Rhiannah's diamond—
Like the sun
God has already established your life's victories
You don't have to battle—you already won
Many of my hopes, dreams and aspirations
Will be passed unto you in more ways than one
Your my lil muffin, my lil hunchkin, my lil honeybun
My precious lil Hannah
You're more precious than platinum that weighs a ton
in the words of Mary J—All I can say
Is your gracing God's green earth was an extravaganza
I love you immensely! My precious lil Hannah
