Selfless

Selfless
You give your time
Day after day

Patient
You listen to us
And never interrupt

Understanding
You’ve been there, too
And give us great advice

Thoughtful
You put your heart
Into doing what’s right

Trustworthy
You’ll keep our secrets
And never tell

Intelligent
You know what you’re doing
And you tell us everything

Loving
You care about us
No matter what we do

Thank you
For all you’ve done
You’re so generous

A secret
Though you mightn’t know it
We love you too

Quite a touching poem; she sounds like a wonderful person. I will be eternally grateful for such people (as this person) who seem to be a gift from God in themselves. I love the format of this piece... well done!
