I will not stand to see you fall -
If falling were to help, I'd surely take that pain.
Although in time I may discard it all,
At least in time these sentiments remain.
If I could grow determination's roots
and see them firmly clutch the crumbling loam,
And share the choicest qualities that fruit,
I would have gained the strength that you have shown.
I can but give in honest praise deserved,
So all shall know the wounds that you have healed.
Spurred on by jars of wholesome fruit preserved,
I will present a mirror to the field.
