Someone once taught me,

To smile through the pain,

To laugh in the darkness,

And dance in the rain,

They taught me to walk,

When I wanted to run,

And taught me to jump,

So I’d reach for the sun,

They taught me to sing,

So I could be heard,

And taught me the wisdom,

Beneath every word,

They taught me acceptance,

Of what I can’t change,

And taught me forgiveness,

For those I would blame,

And someday I’ll teach you,

What they have taught me,

And then you will know,

What a parent can see.
