I promise to never cry as long as I live,
not to harden my heart but to open it,
to never be saddened but what cannot
be but to rejoice in the opportunity
each sunlit morning provides us with.
I promise to meet my challenges
head on and overcome all obstacles,
to separate myself from the negative
and forge ahead in a positive fashion.
I promise to stand tall in the face of
diversity and accept my differences.
I'll not look at what I cannot do
but embrace all that I can and will.
I shall love life whether I like all that
is happening or not. I will make a
difference not in those around me
but in myself to care for, smile
and put myself in the hands of God.
I will help all that are within my reach
and in doing so help myself to
understand, accept and journey in
a way that allows me to be complete.
I shall laugh as if tomorrow was over
and live opening the gateway to love.
I shall celebrate all that I am and
all that I will and can be.
I will dream the dreams of lovers,
breathing new life into each new day.
Dance forever upon the clouds and
reward myself for my accomplishments.
I shall take in a deep breath and gather
the strength need to forge ahead.
I will succeed not in proving my worth
but revealing to all my worth.
When all is said and done and life on
earth is complete I will leave
behind a legacy of a women,
her love and dreams forever
blowing in the wind.
