Have I Told You Lately?

Have I told you lately, I respect you?

Have I told you, You inspire my life?

Have I shared that you ease my burden

as I face my struggles,

my pain, my strife.

Have I told you lately, You’re special.

You brighten up my day.

Have I told you that I am thankful

for all you do and say?

Have I told you lately, I’m great-full

for all you so freely give.

It’s your kindness and care

that teach me each day,

a better way to live.
