An Ode to My Inspiration

You always looked at the bright side,

Even on the gloomiest days.

You taught me to adjust to the tide,

Yet, stand firm in my ways.

Because of you, I am true to myself.


You were the wild wind within my sails,

And the sun in my eyes,

Keeping me on course,

And hearing my cries.

Because of you, I am strong.


Even when I tried to quit,

Got frustrated, and was beaten,

You showed me lessons to learn from it,

And pulled me back to my feet again.

Because of you, I am unrelenting.


You showed me faith, you showed me strength;

These are the things that built me.

Your smile and laugh gave me warmth,

And showed me who I could be.

Because of you, I became better.
