How to express how I feel deep within
To one who has been with me through thick and thin
From the day you were told, "Its a girl"
Your life and mine went in a swirl.
My life has not been easy for you
But you always knew just what to do
I remember the day that I got my brace
You knew I wasn't happy by the look on my face
Its not easy to explain to someone who has felt all my pain
I remember the trip on the plane
Only five minutes did the doctor take to explain,
"Take her home there is nothing we can do"
No one could know the hurt you did feel
Hoping and praying this all was not real
From that moment on you would always say,
We'll do all we can to not let this get in her way
So as life goes on so did we and I wanted like others
to climb that tree I wanted to be just like the rest
Alas you knew you could not protest
Tho it took some time for me to adjust
you were always there to tell me I must
"Do not give up, believe that you can
Believe in yourself and soon you will see
There is nothing in life that you can not be"
With out you by my side I don't know what I'd do
For it was you who was there helping me to get through
They say that when God closes one door he opens another
I believe so that we will discover
That what lies ahead we need not dread.
But to look instead for what we are here to do
And not to feel sorry for me or you.
