Poem: Thank Youuu

About

I wrote this poem as a thank you gift to those who have supported me and as a reminder to be proud of yourself for the things you have achieved in life. When the unexpected arrives, you will feel regret for not doing the things you should have done especially after losing someone or something. I hope this poem also helps you to appreciate your friends and family while they're still around.

Thank Youuu

I don’t think I’ve said this enough,

Thank you for being there with me,

When things got rough,

And through happy times.


Now thank yourself,

For staying strong,

For being the unique you,

Nobody can replace you.


Every obstacle, you’ve overcome,

Every success, you’ve celebrated,

You had regrets, let it go,

Just treat it as fated.


Do it after you read this poem,

Say how are you to those who need it the most,

For you never know what tomorrow will bring,

Spend more time with your family.


Your time on earth is well spent,

Be happy and don’t worry about what-ifs,

People are grateful to have met you.

You are special, please remember that.
