Strong of Spirit

Updated on July 17, 2017

From the time we are all born to the day we may pass away,

A spirit resides within us each and gets stronger every day.

Not to matter just how old or how wrinkled we each may get,

That benevolent aura only gets brighter, is ours there to stay.

As time moves onward, with a new day its strength improves,

That inner power growing by the hour, as to all, it so behooves.

True stature of any man is not in height, but what is held inside,

The things one says, acts performed with care, always to abide.

Please just ask dear friend Jimmy what means so much,

How his working so hard every day in building and such,

His own life valued less than of his sisters and brothers.

Dedicating himself to the Lord, while in the care of others.

There are no greater gifts to friends that we all may share,

Than spreading of hope and for this a better life to prepare.

Giving everyone a hand up and in a lightening of their load,

Reflecting our own strongest faith, while we travel life's road.
