​A Leap

His strength was admirable 

And the way he approached 

Whatever life sent his way

Had always been commendable

There were many tales to tell

The perspectives would vary

But he’d maintained the value

Of honor while he excel

He’d had his shortcomings 

Still was always the type 

Who through life’s storms 

Would always keep going

This was his greatest test

After wanting for so long 

For such an opportunity to come

Since there had been none like this

There was now the possibility 

That having his deepest desire

Had passed from just fantasy

Into finally becoming a reality

All it took was a leap of faith 

And being strengthened

To forge ahead knowing

That love never comes too late
