Let it be Known

By RaheemaFKM

Let it be known you’ve done your part; let it be known you’ve raised me well
When the verdict is passed, and judgments are made
Let it be known I’ve done you proud
If ever they ask what made me so, what made me strong, what helped me grow
Let it be known I came from you; let it be known you loved me true
When I stand in the light, when I shine with a smile
Let it be known I was well worth the while
Let it be known you gave me the best, and that in return I gave you no less
As they heap to me praise, as they give grand applause
Let it be known I bow thanks to you
Let it be known that all my success, that all my prowess was a gift from your hand
And last, when the curtain falls on your stage, let it be known you’ve marked every page
In the book of my life I’ll extend everlong; let it be known in me you’ll live on
