This book of poetry is the second part of 5 books of poem series collection. It was written with the intention to show my daughter a part of her from my point of view and the experiences she has shown me in just a short period of her life and the journey that lies ahead of us. There are 8 chapters: Ravira, Ife, Bello, Secret Water, Life, Ojo (Days), Sun, and Pisces; the books includes songs written and inspired by her from my album: 1. Written In Our Blood, 2. Lost In Her Love, 3. Sweet Baby Love, 4. I Have To Be There, 5. Always Here & Always There. Some of the poems address the issue of time and how it changes base on your needs, expectations, and situations. How fatherhood has changed my time and life, how being a father changes the way I see my own father and mother; sharing an unconditional love with someone creating a feeling of wearing an eternal blanket of love that is sew to your being. I want my daughter to understand that the love I have for her is eternal she does not have to ask to be given love and she does not need to seek for it in the wrong places.
