Life’s Lessons

They held my hand

Taught me how to walk

But not the path to tread

They wiped every tear

Taught me how to smile

But not how to face each fear

They stood by me

Taught me how to be strong

But not how when all goes wrong

They loved me

Taught me how to share

But not how to live without a care

N so one day I went up to them,

Life is not as easy as I thought it may

Yes, they said, its yours to carve your way !
