Life was like a struggling boat
Before you entered my life.
You helped me to rise and not just float,
While withstanding strife.
Whatever I am, good or bad,
I owe it all to you,
Only for you nowadays I'm glad,
And friends like you are few.
You've taught this soul to smile a lot
And learn to love the ground and plain.
Don't leave or go and forget-me-not,
'Coz without you I'll be lonely again.
My life was dark before you came,
Your smile has made it bright,
I was wild, you made me tame,
Through your caring light.
All your ways which show you care
Endears you to my heart.
The way you give, the way you share
Makes me wish that we don't part.
