Ride forth against the tide,
Rise above the surf of challenges,
Welcome every sunrise with a vision,
Send off every sunset with hope...
Attack each day with courage and a smile
Meet each burden with grace and guile.
Wrap yourself with comfort and glee.
You can only rely on yourself, not any other me.
The waves of life ebb and flow.
Trying to understand each turn to grow.
Difficulties arise, so meet them head on.
Don't be discourage, take a step and move on.
Looking back over years of hard work
Leaves me quick witted with a quirk
I'm impatient with others who moan and grown
Get on with it, or you'll never know
what lies ahead each and every day.
Open your eyes, come what may.
Be patient and wise in your old age.
As a youth, take advice from the sage.
Look upon each mountain and curve as expected
Surf those challenges as if neglected
Reach for the stars, high in heaven
You dear friend, will never be misgiven.
