Poetry

Bittersweet.

Overheard something today 

And it brought me so much pride

You've come along way 

You're enjoying the ride 

 

Maybe I was your anchor

that didn't let go 

Maybe I didn't do enough

To help you grow 

 

Overheard something to day 

And it brought a stray tear 

You've come along way 

You've no more fear 

 

I'd like to think I inspired you 

A catalyst for change 

I'd like to think somehow I did help too

Something something strange 

 

    - on your marks, get set, go! 

    - it's nice seeing someone's growth 

    - I'm proud. I will always be proud.
