You Make me Proud

We sit for a moment in silence,

And I watch you and hold your hand.

For a moment I don’t know if you are thinking about today’s pain, or the pain that was,

but it doesn’t matter which and a silent tear runs down your cheek.

Don’t forget that you are a hero. You fight a battle everyday that no one is aware of.

You are a hero, that provides for children, because it is the right thing to do.

In fact it is the only course of action you can imagine.

You have taken great strides, when I met you you were afraid to speak to me,

Afraid to talk on the phone.

And you don’t see it, but so much has changed, and you make me proud.
