Serenity's Gate

I hope this letter, to you my daughters, becomes like a letter to a friend As we venture on this journey to its end We'll start off like eager travellers, trying to share the selfsame track And what matter, if you stray a little, for I'll just lift you up and bring you back I will steady you if you stumble, catch you if you fall Hold your hand if you get weary, guide and protect you through it all Oh I pray you learn to love life with a passion With a zest and inner smiles For that in truth, is the secret fuel That will drive you countless miles Sometimes loving life just takes a bow Or worry spreads across your brow At times your health may not be quite as good at it could be Well don’t fret for I'll raise that smile Just stay with me a while And that inner glow will shine bright again you’ll see Together we will tackle any fear Banish doubts when they are near Raise hope when it is lacking For you have forever got my backing I’ll help you always go the extra mile And scale those lofty mountaintops in style Then I sincerely promise you will find Life will love you back in kind In more ways than you would ever guess Adding life to years and years to life no less For your circumstances always follow thought And a life worth living is never cheaply bought I’ll keep you on the straight and narrow, if you will but let me take the lead As if we stick together on the journey, we cannot fail but to succeed And no longer will you just be my daughters But partners till the end Now that’s a heart felt promise as your friend LifelineMike (Daddy)
