What you have done
May have been simple
But for me alone without you
It could not have been done.
My life has been made good
And the world a better place to be
And I thank you for being
When I needed you.
And though I cannot give to you
A gift as precious as you gave to me,
When a time comes
For me to pass the gift along
And help another.
It is because I learned from you
That the well of kindness flows
To fill the cup for all to drink.
Know that I remember you in all my days
And bless the stars that crossed our ways.
