I’m not as good as you are.
All I could do is to try to be half as good.
I want to make you proud.
And I know it’s not enough just being what I am now –
one of the many things that keeps me going.
I will continue doing my best,
with what I have,
with what I can do.
be at peace.
Because despite where I am now,
I will move on,
I will strive,
and I will live.
For being such an inspiration,
I will miss you.
But thank you.
