A good foundation- two feet planted firmly on the ground
Adequate strength- to carry the weight of yourself and others (others are optional)
A mind of your own- a brain that will lead you away from the hive
Emotion- a determining factor of a healthy soul
It might not seem like much,
But when you add them all together,
You’ve built yourself
A modest home.
There were times both happy and sad
Sometimes we were even mad
But you were always by my side
Buckling me in for the long ride.
We took a trip just you and I
With views that made me weep and sigh
And filled my heart with memories
As we looked out over the cold dark seas
Wondering about all the things to come
Leading us back to where we came from.
Then we hit a downward slope
I didn’t know how we could cope
I suffered through pain and being ill
But this year will be better still.
