Hello my beautiful baby,
I’m writing to let you know what will definitely be
I know it’s hard for you to leave the position you’re holding up there
But you need to know that I really need you down here

 

I’ve waited so long for us to meet
And each day goes by with increased heartbeat
I just can’t wait for us to walk hand in hand
I hope you will understand

Allow me the pleasure of bringing you down to earth
Allow me the privilege of bringing you close to my heart
Allow me to take you through the path no one will
Allow me to show I care when you tell me how you feel

I want to cuddle you round my arms
Protect you against any harm
I want to have you feel the warmth of my embrace
And always bring smiles to your face

Imagine you and I sitting alone in the garden
Wearing my Versace and you wearing your Pierre Cardin
Imagine us having fun
With cups of ice cream and a bowl of pop corn

You are my treasure and my pride
And I know you’ll make a beautiful bride
Mojisola, my lovely angel
I will always be with you, even when you go through hell

Picture me by your side when you go to bed
Picture me by your side when you want to wed
Picture me wiping the tears from your eye
Picture me walking you down the aisle

I wish I could continue on things we could do together
I wish I could let you know that above you I’ll place no other
I know you have no idea who is writing you, my pretty lady
Well, my name is Oluwaseun and I’m your daddy.
