To all my loving and wonderful friends, I salute you.
For times that I was down and you were there to say,
“Cheer up” with remarks to make me laugh.
For times when I was sad and you were there to say,
“Alright” with fun we always shared.
For times when I was doubtful and you were there to say,
“Hey, Calm Down” with reactions to make me laugh again.
For the times that I was taking love and you were there to say,
“It’s OK. We love you enough to put up with it.”
I want to say thank you.
I love you just as much, and I just hope I get a chance
to give some of that wonderful love back.
And even more, I hope you’ll still be my friend.
Love for an eternity… your friend.
