Words Of Encouragement

You've given me encouragement every single day,
You have helped me to fly, in your kind and loving way,
You lifted my wings with your wind, so I could see,
Which is more than anyone has ever done for me.

How do I put into words, things that I can never say,
Your words of encouragement are always here to stay,
My love and thankfulness, if I can repay it I would,
I am writing this because only you knew that I could.





This poem is dedicated to my Mom, Janet Deschler.
She is always the "wind beneath my wings".

    Simply beautiful. Never let a day go by when you don't tell her you love her. How I wish I could say those words to my mum right now

    Thank you very much, Darren. It is difficult to say those words sometimes, but we need to say it more often. I am sure that your mum knows you love her. She will always be with you, Darren...Sorry about the late reply, but I have been sick over the past week, and I am trying to catch up now! :)

    I just wanted to clear up any confusion with this poem. My Mom has not passed away, she is still living, sorry if I made it sound like that. This was just my way of thanking her for everything she has done for me and continues to do! :)
