A Better Person
If you close your eyes you'll never see,
just how much she means to me.
All I ask from this day on, is to stand beside her and cheer her on.
She'll bring you places that you've never been,
and show you love from deep within.
She'll melt your heart a little more each day,
until it seems her disability has faded away.
But it's still there, i'll tell no lies.
It sometimes appears, to be in disguise.
You no longer see through rose colored glasses.
As this vision you once had, slowly passes.
The child you once thought of as frail and weak,
instead has made you implore defeat.
Her health sometimes may seem uncertain.
Yet through it all, she has made you a better person.
