When I was lost
You helped me find myself.
When I was in doubt
You reassured me.
When I thought that all was past,
You gave me the future.
When I felt helpless
You made me strong.
When I was in the dark
You brought the light.
When I did my best
You applauded me.
When I was at my worst
You pulled me through.
When I said thank you,
You said thank you too.
