How do you pass on encouragement
When your own spirits are sinking down
Into a depth of worry you haven’t known before?
I want to tell her that life will workout,
That any dream can come true if pursued,
That she is on to bigger and better things.
But what if I struggle to describe hope right now?
Perhaps the most I can do
Is to promise you
That through the good and bad times,
The thick and thin,
Know that you will be surrounded
By a family who loves you
And who will always be rooting for you to win.
And while you won’t always win– sometimes we all lose–
Know that there is a door you can run back to,
A house with a light waiting for you,
And that I will always be proud of you,
No matter what life may put you through.
