To all have been by my side,
Helped me smile through tears
And heard my smallest fears,
Never let me forget who I am,
Kept me going when I felt dead,
Showed dreams that lay ahead.
For all the memories of life –
Of past, present and to come,
Remaining forever priceless.
Blessing my life with love, care,
Eking that little time to spare,
In loneliness, showing me their
Nest, its warmth would be there,
Giving me joys beyond compare.
To words, my lifeline always,
How can I forget you to praise;
Every emotion you have seen,
Real friend to me, you’ve been,
Each step since good ol’ days.
I am thankful for where I am,
Now in life, midway in journey.
Many steps still left to take,
Yet I am thankful for those too.
Let your light shine on me,
In times of darkness that I face;
For you, Almighty one, guide,
Each decision that I do make.
