you deserve an encore for the love that you've given 
for the courage you gave to help others keep living 

for the kindness and love temperance and fortitude 
the grace from above through you it exudes 

the reflection of honor righteousness and truth 
for the tolerance of intolerance setting examples with proof 

for the humanity and humbleness and so much more 
for you and only you i present this encore 

there is nothing that compares to the aura you invoke 
along with the positive statutes of life you promote 

the inexplicable inner-knowledge within you retain 
your infallible answers to others that baffle their brains 

for your patience with wisdom and so much more 
for you and only you i present this encore 

for the firmness and the hold you have on reality 
for the uncanny talent you posses living through life's tragedies 

for the way you rise when you've been knocked down 
for your will to survive when loves not around 

for your passion in life when life has no compassion for you 
for your optimistic outlook of life's overview 

for your stand up personality of never back down 
of carry a big stick and make very little sound 

for your code of conduct and so much more 
for you and only you i present this encore 

the world needs more people exactly like you 
for the light in your heart always shines through
