you acknowledge 
our feats 
with kind words that 
our day

each gesture gives us
to try again, never give up
always think positive 

lucky to cross paths 
with one
so caring and generous

will continue to sing your
praises for years
to come

you tap each one’s
potential with 
words of 

giving a place to spill our tears
and sing our songs

we express our 
gratitude with love
