Wonderful Life.

Once more a year has passed,

A year of trials and upheavals,

A year that has ended in glory

As her life stabilises into a future

That will be wonderful.

Full of happiness,

Full of acceptance,

Filled with the love

The love of family and friends

As she looks forward

Towards the wonderful life,

That will be ahead of her.
