I owe you my life My wisdom My talents My strengths My beauty. I thought I knew myself but I’ll never know me like How you knew me. And somehow You looked passed the ugly And deemed me Deserving. Pulled me to safety Away from the edge Inspired within me an urge To give you my pledge To serve.
When I thought I reached a peak I was proven to be short sighted. When I was presented with the answers My heart was delighted And my soul lifted. You are like the stick my stem is stuck to As I grow tall, broad and straight. You are the rope I hold on to As I climbed and floated, And you were not bothered by my weight.
You’re a friend to me You’re the someone I always wanted. Heard me cry scream and sob And you were patient when insulted. And so I live by your mercy And you remain exalted And I pledge to continue serving So that I can prove to you To myself That I am deserving.
