Just in time, God took you by the hand
on your last feet and barely able to stand.
He reached out to you on Christmas last year,
and helped you to fight back with what you had to fear.
down and out, all out of hope you lay there so helplessly
my poor father, my friend, your sweet life came close to an end
you gathered yourself, as respectable as ever
you put on a brave face and you said the word never
never again will you have another drink
never again will you carelessly think
never again will you put yourself through hell
and so you began, to begin to be well
a change so drastic, lonely and hard
the guilt in your heart from all the ones you have scarred
you went through the horrors time and time again
trying your hardest, in so much pain
your own heart had ached, as well as everyone who cared
we had to leave you own your own
alone and scared.
To make you realise how bad you really were -
But so strong you were, to have came this far
You really are a shooting star
I have never been so truly proud of you
I can’t believe you’ve made it through.
I hope you stay strong willed for the rest of your years
you deserve so much credit
I hope your attitude perseveres.
