Thank you kind lady for rescuing me
and showing me just what it means to be free.
For bringing me here to this calm, peaceful place,
and the kindness you show in your beautiful face.
For showing me grass and an angel who sings,
for giving me space to be stretching my wings.
For being the person who never says “can’t”.
For being my friend, and a true confidante.
For having a kind man who must love you so
to have toiled in the rain & the wind & the snow.
For sharing a joke as you powdered my bum!
For being my lovely compassionate “Mum”.
And mostly I thank you both for your strife –
to give me the most precious gift that is life.
