Always There For You - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Without the support from someone...
Who is also there with a belief shared to give.
And not doubtful with negativity daily expressed.
Who can succeed with that kind of reminding stress?
Not too many.
There are those who will still succeed,
In environments with no support given.
And yet when success comes to be achieved,
To be believed with it known to be accomplished...
That's when support for continued success,
From nowhere seems to come to be loudly addressed.
'You were always so smart.
So intelligent and so different from everyone.
I knew you were going to be successful.
Even if I repeatedly said to you and others,
You would never amount to anything.
I was not convinced your activities were worth attention.
You managed to get it!
And that I find miraculous.
I am so glad my comments motivated you.'
I'll never be able to repay you.
Your approach to motivating me was unique.~
You know I was always there for you.'
