Who I am today

You are the love to my heart, the passion in my heart. You are the happiness in my smile and the drive in my passion.

You’re the my first thought in the morning and the last thought at night.

You have taught me so much, I have learnt how to live, appreciate and accept.

I thank you for what you have taught me, what we have experienced and for what us to come.

Because of you, I am who I am today, and for that, I am grateful.
