I believe everything happens for a reason
In fairy tale endings and happily ever after
I believe in a brighter tomorrow and hope for the future
I believe we learn from every experience, every pain, and every joy
I believe in remembering memories
In saving silly mementos and taking pictures of everything
I believe in serving others and giving of ones’ self
I believe in hard work and determination
In never giving up and not quitting
I believe in personal strength and the acceptance of failure
I believe in saying I love you, but showing it more
I believe in the innocence of childhood and the reality of fear
I believe in a God who holds me, through good times and bad
I know pain and fear, but I still believe.
