Accepting the Award
Thank-you for this award.
For the acknowledgement
And all it represents.
It has been my life's work;
Alongside amazing nominees.
I'm truly overwhelmed
At receiving this heavy trophy.
Thank-you to all who supported me;
Who lent a shoulder of dignity;
Who helped when things got tough
And kept me in straight sobriety.
This award means so much.
I must thank-you with all my heart -
Those whose lives have crossed my path,
With memories that may just last.
Thank-you for this wonderful award;
For the prestige and accolade.
Thanks to all who helped along the way;
Too many to mention as the names fade.
I'm truly blessed, as the music plays,
It's been an honour to receive this today;
I thank my Lord, my God in everyway;
Knowing I can rest in peace this way.
