I have watched you,
you seem so lost in your world lately,
the frown on your face says so much,
and yet you are not letting on.
I pray for you,
hoping that you will figure it out,
whatever it is,
believing that He that has carried you thus far
would help you smile again.
I am glad I prayed,
for today, I saw a rainbow,
with so much zest in you,
you jumped out of bed,
you looked ready to conquer,
ready to take the world by its horns.
There was zing in your stride,
you did slog at your chores,
I am grateful for the renewed energy in you,
I am glad that you realise that nothing rewarding
comes without effort,
I am proud of you, my child.
