He, who was a teacher to me,
Taught me things which couldn't be learned from school.

He, who was a mother to me,
Understood things which I couldn't tell.

He, who was a sister to me,
Blamed himself for the mistakes I made.

He, who was a father to me,
Cared about me and my joys even when he was suffering.

He, who was a brother to me,
Protected me from every danger that came on my way.

He, who was a best friend to me,
Kept all my secrets and joined me in all my adventures.

He, who was a lover to me,
Loved me unconditionally...
