For You, My Dear…
Your trials and struggles make you tough, my dear.
They make you solid, strong and bold.
Your heart is nearly pure, my dear.
It’s brilliant and sweet and laced with gold.
Your trust is safe, my dear.
The secrets you’ve shared, I’ve never told.
You’re an inspiration to me, my dear.
The kindness you spread keeps away the cold.
You’re a survivor, my dear.
There may be much against you,
But you, my dear, even as you grow old…
Shall never fold…..
