For You I Will

You are all I have to work and smile for,
You give me all the reasons to wake up early each day,
You have always been the reason I go to bed late,
You continue to motivate me to be strong in all I do,
You have never let me down in any way so far.

I love you so much my dear daughter,
I see a great woman produced in you,
I cannot let any chance for your triumphs pass me by,
I will fight nail and tooth for you to achieve prominence,
I know you are determined to make me a happy mama.

We have been through so much pain together, darling,
We have cried together when it did not seem possible for us,
We have sang together strong songs of inspiration for hours,
We have prayed as one tight team each morning and bedtime,
We have celebrated the many wonderful things in our individual lives together.

For you I will stand up again after each fall,
For you I will kneel and pray harder for God’s guidance,
For you my voice will be sharpened for praise,
For you my keyboard will speak globally to share your success,
For you, Audrey Namikoye, other young women will be empowered.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Girls Transform the World Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring girls greater access to education which will transform their lives, their families, and communities. The Girls Transform Campaign elicits insightful content from young women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as women, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.
