On the shore of life
Contemplating thoughts
Brought to me in reveries
Reflecting what was taught

Life is filled with many waves
But always reached the shore
Navigation although hard
Was managed with great roar

Resting now in happiness
My heart is so content
Feeling that no matter what
I know what courage meant

Assured that I can do this now
It gives me such repose
Trials and tribulations are
Just tiny little blows

Sailed this ship within the storm
This navigation blessed
Proud to say that in the end
Each steering was conquest

Brave and strong I have become
Touched with confidence
Proud and true I'll always be
True woman of substance.
