The Mountains You Will Climb

A beautiful poem given to us in a NICU care package from Graham’s Foundation


The Mountains You Will Climb

You had a choice
And you took the road less traveled
Most get to stroll on the sidewalk
But you chose to take the gravel

You have your parent’s life force
Feel it growing inside you
It is with you for your journey
It is there to guide you

Oh the stories they will tell
Of the mountains that you climbed
And the hurdles that you leapt
The doubts you left behind

Don’t give up on hope
For that is when we perish
It is the miracle you are becoming
That we all will grow to cherish

For life is a risk worth taking
Though we are tested now and then
We thank you for this chance
We would do it all again
