You were there

Through the pains, heartaches

Delays, doubts, and fears

Through the struggle

Denials, and strife

You were there


You are loyal and faithful

A dependable rock

You believed in me

And taught me to do

Likewise, my best friend


You opened my heart

To see the challenge

As a phase, a process that

Will bring forth my inner

Beauty and strength


You showed me the light

You took away my fears

You guided my steps

You gave me victory


You are always here

You are my strength

My pillar and my refuge

Today I say, thank You.

Priceless gift


Set it free and let them go

look around you and breathe in

there are a thousand and one things

to be thankful for, close your eyes and live

Feel the splash of warmth that envelops your being

let go of worries that drain you of today and deny you tomorrow

Rather, bask in the euphoria of this precious moment

a gift that is priceless.
