The Greatest Inspiration - Poem by Jacob Gifford

This is for the ones who mean the most,
who are the greatest inspiration,
who are the hardest to let go.
They will sit by your side,
and listen to every word you say,
without judging,
without criticism,
and without turning their back on you.
They will teach you the greatest life lessons,
what's good and bad,
and what it's like to loose someone you dearly love.
In my life I have learned many truths,
and in my eyes,
the greatest way to prosper,
especially in the hardest of times,
is to love them,
cherish them,
live in their wisdom,
and hold them close to your heart.

In memory of best friend Rico, who I will always LOVE.
