you

save some love 

for yourself

say some kind words

to your untiring strength 

praise your body

for supporting you

and your mind too

for being there for you 

in all that you do

you are with yourself

your constant companion

your guardian angel

look in the mirror

and confess to that image

the love, the gratitude 

that you feel for that visage 

you have accomplished achievements 

that lay beyond your wildest dreams

you have defeated the demons

that riddled your nightmares, 

playing hide and seek

you are more than you know

you are more than you show

you are greater than everything you’ve overcome 

and if need be

you will do it once more

– you
