I am a Carer

My cup is almost always overflowing 
Yet I hold my head high, my heart is glowing 
For inside of me a light burns bright 
So I can help ease someone's plight 

There are times I feel like giving up 
And running from all that is in my cup 
Today I honour the strength I so often find 
Despite the gruelling daily grind 

I promise today not to sweat the small stuff 
Even though so often this can be tough 
And love the difference I make for another to be 
Today I promise to appreciate me 

I am so much more than what I do 
And today I choose to love me too 
And to value and acknowledge me for me 
This I know is the key
