You came into my life, shy and reserved,
A youth in your years,
Elder in your tears.
You walked fate’s road, struggles were many,
With strength of spirit and innocence of mind,
You faced each battle, but courage declined.
Now faced with new future, fresh tension arises,
Choices to make, decisions now worsen,
What do you do, who to trust, life so uncertain,
Alone in your thoughts, held close by concerns,
You seek perfect answers, options so varied,
Each with burden, your brain now harried.
Time for new day, bright path awaits you,
Surround self with love, you have that power,
Let all who know you, in awe now cower.
Let no material gifts, though treasure they may be,
Fill your loneliness, for their love is but one way,
Seek out open palms, arms of heart you did sway.
Reach out from your melancholy, stand tall sweet friend,
Let your objectives be dear,
Tomorrow be not today, for your vision now clear.
