You gave ground to my longing,
balance to my hope.
You smoothed out all the spaces
that made me doubt
and wish for something different.
You gave me belief
and of a higher power.
You gave me the strength,
and the will to carry on.
I waited for you for so long
lessons broke through the sidelines
and I learned that gifts are granted
when they are also received.
