Whether you're on the rez,
from the hood or in the bush
You're a strong Native sister that no one can push.
For all the times you've suffered in vain;
Through trials, triumphs, misery and pain.
I'd just like to thank you, again and again.
Thanks for being the glue that holds our nations strong
Because of you sister, we learn we belong.
For the lost warriors you have helped and shown the way
You've mended their wounds to fight yet another day.
For the elders you have handled, carried and cared;
Soft -spoken kindness will always be shared.
For the blessed children you give life, love or home
Gives us our future, where we're free to roam.
Thank you for your arms, that holds all our hearts
Whether they're broken, laughing or falling apart.
Thanks for showing single daddies how to stop, drop and shop
Just keep giving them tips on how to stay on top.
Thanks for helping your sister as she struggles or tries
She loves you for holding her, knowing why she cries.
Thank you for your tolerance, tough love and glory
For any of your firmness, never be sorry.
Thanks for your forgiveness and unspoken word
Your patience is a lesson that is often heard.
Thank you for feeding us, when hunger is here,
For in the hard times, you lessen the fear.
Thank you for being weak and not afraid to cry
It teaches us humility, while learning to fly.
Thanks for your laughter, hugs and your smile
Your presence is a gift that's always in style.
Your strength is the guiding light for many that fall
And because of you sisters......many more are walking tall.
