My Hero is Amazing
Like a breath of fresh air you blew into my life.
This fresh breeze blew the thunder clouds from my soul
Allowing the sun to break through and shine.
I awoke from the stupor of my half dead life
And knew a new day was dawning. You challenged me
To think and learn. The thinking was the hardest…
Who am I, Why do I think as I do, Will I accept new challenge?
These questions were a sunrise to my soul.
How you knew I needed a friend I do not know
But you came at the perfect time to save my heart
Harder and harder it became, losing the faith of the child,
Until a sunrise occurred and a new day dawned.
Now, I thank God every day that someone so caring,
So loving noticed me. A genius in disguise, a soul of love and hope.
Like a loving home’s memories, you imprinted my mind with your words.
Knowledge, love, understanding…someone finally who thinks like me.
All my life I hoped to find someone who could understand.
All my life I hoped there was someone who believed as me.
Now, I find them and they are a child…only in age not in knowledge.
I am in awe of your knowledge. I am in awe of your understanding.
I have lived much longer and not learned as much.
You teach me daily, you challenge me as no other has, you make me think
And in thinking I live again. How did this happen? You explain your mind
And I am in awe. Where did you gain this knowledge? How, When, Why?
I thought myself wise, till I met you. You showed me I know nothing
He Hopes I Dance
You showed me I need to learn…and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I have been behind a wall for many years, afraid to break it down.
You didn’t break it, you walked right through it. I don’t know how, or when…
But there you were. A soul shining in my darkness…a light at the end of the tunnel…
A friend when I needed one so desperately. Thank you my friend.
I love you. You have woken me…you have encouraged me…you have made me who I once was.
You have taken the blinders from my eyes and let me see all about.
You have taught me it is good to love and hope and dream!
You took me from my cocoon and taught me how to live again.
For all of this I thank you. But, know I love you more than any.
Know that if I can repay you, you only need to ask.
It was no small feat to wake me and make me feel again,
And for this I thank you and tell you I am in your debt.
You are an extraordinary soul! You are a genius!
You are everything I needed and more! Thank you for being here.
Thank you for challenging me, thank you for waking me!
I hope you understand how much goodness you own.
I hope you know how wonderful you are!
I hope you never stop being who and what you are!
You are my “hero”.
I Think He May Want Me To Not Change
