My parents say that I will live only once

I don’t believe that’s true

As I become a different person as I grow

Depending on what I go through

From the day that I arrived on earth

I grow, develop and change

So how can I remain as one

When nothing stays the same?

Everything changes day by day

I have different emotions everyday

Some people are enchanted with babies

Seeing magic in all that they do

Of course, we also all lived as a baby

But that’s no longer you.

Yesterday’s you has gone away

But do not cry for the past you.

For you’re all you can be today;

They're just the person you were yesterday.
