You Are More Than Just You

My little girl was her Daddy's Angel
But never less than her Mommy's treasure! 
A true blessing in disguise with no wings
Naughty, yet beautiful beyond description 
Was waiting to see her grow to be wonderful just like us
A sudden tornado tore our lives all apart
I wander with a ruffling mind aimlessly
I sweep through night and day but fall short at times
Evenings touch my feeble hands
And I searched  her distant eyes, 
She looked back with love and trust for shelter
Her constant gaze with a mirror image 
Was reading my inner struggle 
She threw her voice at my pain and said
There is no strength with easy past
Every time she tripped and fell, I learnt something about me
She taught me to battle more than once
Greater storm, brighter rainbow 
I learnt atlast to sail my ship from the budding captain
Yes, only she could melt my temper
With much love dripping full of memories
Both sweet and bitter nostalgic moments  
My tears spilled over and I realised
She is the joy of my life... the light of my eyes
I try to survive and push on! 
She still needs me and believes that I am unstoppable 
And that makes me want to breakdown sometimes.
Don't know why it's so hard for me to see how incredible I am!
She knew all my hidden past and yet she asked
Desperate to pull and push me out
To help me see the light in the dark
Just to remind me who I was and who still I am.
She was my strong hope though small
Mothering and giving me a shoulder to cry
And after all the tears those gestures brought
I thanked her for loving me unconditionally 
She never know to limit her limitations
And I knew that she is a born leader leading me forward
And now she wrote...
You've nothing to lose
Wipe your tears
And burn all that doesn't serve you
'Cause you're more than just you...
I can't help it. You're Amazing!
There is no reason to turn back
You just need to give yourself a chance and believe change.
I smiled through my tears
Counting my blessing I have in her
She is indeed powerful beyond measure
And my heart decided
One more step
Just one more...
For a little while longer
To fight the good odd fights
To survive and create myself endlessly
To let the bubbly Mommy she knew, come to life
The one all her friends admired
And said was "so cool"
That Mommy...
That super woman... My daughter's hero!
The lifeless challenge is no more!
The strange secret lies in creating joy
No One can see but you
Yes, no one can rejoice but you!
Now I ask myself to go on
And try...
To try,
To love myself!!!
