I congratulate you

I do warmly congratulate you;
You have held fast
To your lofty dream;
You have not surrendered.

You have tenacity of purpose;
That is the winning spirit;
Many, with the losing spirit,
Surrender easily.

They pack their bags
And go home;
Not the champion’s spirit.
And not at all encouraged.

You have kept on going;
With faith and confidence;
You have displayed courage;
I say, “Bravo!”; I applaud you.

More power to your elbows;
The happy rewards, to reap,
When the time is ripe.
I do warmly congratulate you.
