THE OPPORTUNITY


I couldn’t explore the moon or stars,

until you gave me the chance to try.

I could never leave this earth

until I had the encouragement to fly.

The world held me tight.

I couldn’t lift my sluggish feet.

Yet I continued to struggle on

and never admit defeat.

Your mind was a will of iron

and kept me focused on my task.

You helped move each weight, each burden,

and did more than I dared ask.

Upward I continue to climb.

One step will turn into two.

My dreams are now within my grasp

and it’s all because of you.
