You Have Taught Me

You have taught me patience
to rejoice in small gains which others take for granted.

You have taught me tolerance
to accept that your perspective is different and deserves respect.

You have taught me courage
to fight for you when no one else will.

You have taught me endurance
to go on when I feel I can’t anymore.

You have taught me humility
to accept when I can’t make things better
but can only be here for you.

You have taught me to love at a deeper level
than I ever thought possible.
