Line 9 - "My name is" your first name
Line 10 - "It means" and in 1-2 brief sentences state something important you believe about life.

It means compassionate, sensitive and strong
It is the number 33
It is like sunset on fire
It is a candlelight dinner and being in love
It is the memory of my father
Who taught me how to do the very best I can
When he would settle for nothing less
My name is Maia
It means happiness and being kind to everyone
