For Debbie

I’ve never even begun
To tell you that I owe
To you everything that I know.
Thank you for all that you’ve done;
For encouraging me to have fun,
For being there to watch me go –
Progressing fast, progressing slow,
Urging me to run.

I remember when I was a child.
You always kept my hopes high,
And not once have you allowed
Me to forget that you were proud.
You never gave me a reason why
I shouldn’t go the extra mile.
