Alone, scared, helpless and sad....
- the gist of my feelings when I met you first,
A refreshing gust of breeze you were...
Uplifting surrounding friendly and warm,
You instantly saw the best in me
when I was convinced and certain there could not be any.
Your simple attitude, honest , kind and dear,
gave hope, assurance and light-hearted cheer.
Times I felt I've been pushed out to fend,
a gentle, caring hand you always had to lend.
I can never forget the countless times when you have given me courage to dare,
Only by your confidence in me, your encouragement, or you……..just by being there.
