I Remember

I was there from the start

Those struggling months.

Where you questioned if this was what you really want.

Through the tears and the pain, I held your hand.

And told you that it was all part of the plan.

I made you laugh while you cried,

And let you know what’s important is inside.

There was no doubt you had what it took

To really gain that winning outlook.

It took time, but you’re finally there.

Celebrating your success, fear nowhere.

You look around and things are bright

You see the light I told you you might.

You believe in yourself now,

The work has paid off.

No one can step in your way, worry, you brush it off.

You are on top, everyone can see.

Songs of praise are written about thee.

And where am I…I look on.

Smile on my face, though you are gone.

I remember the times late at night,

You thought you were empty, but I saw the light.

I helped you see the stars, when everything was black…

And brought you out hell, and back on track.

I have no grudge against you,

I know that I was one of the few.

Who helped hold you up, when you were afraid…

That eventually your dream would somehow fade.

I look on from a distance afar…

Smiling that you have set your own bar.

You will do great things, you will go far…

And if the time ever comes…

Again, I will help you see… the stars.
