I’m deaf to dark, blind to sound 

I am guilty and I am innocent  

I have risen and I have fallen 

In ways that I cannot explain  

I was arrogant, but now humbled 

In ways that I seek to acclimate 

I was gifted with someone special   

Who brought the best in me- out 

By daring to invest themselves 

For that, I will always be grateful   

More than words could express   

I may be lost, I may drown in pity  

But I learned I’ll never be empty   

I have my life mission… to fulfill
