world was not so fascinating

life never seemed meaningful

morning wasn’t so inspiring

neither rain did any good


until one day,

you showed me the way

I clench close to my heart

the wisdom those words impart


to believe myself

to be myself

to trust my faith

and tame perseverance


to stay positive

in the face of storm too

to dare to dream

and follow them too


I followed your light

and here I am

raising bar of success

for myself each day


dreaming new dream

realising each dream

inspiring others to dream

the way you did one day!
