This is a poem about a best friend of mine that I will never be able to thank enough for all that he has done for me.

I Thank You



I find you irresistible
in your ways of kindness.
And I thank You so much
for being there for me, when
all I needed was a shoulder
to cry on. You were always
that shoulder, the only one.

You talked to me, told me
your secrets, and in return,
I told you mine. You kept those
secrets in your heart, and
never told a soul. I in return,
did the same with yours.

I thank you for all the time
you spent with me, just so
I wouldn't be alone. You were
always there when no one else
was. When no one else wanted
to be.

I thank you for the times you
cheered me up, when I was
the most depressed. I thank
you for the times you relieved
all my stress during very stressful
times.

I thank you for all the advice
you gave to me. You always
told me the truth of the situation
and told me the best thing I could
do. And you never got ill at me
for not taking your advice. You
never once told me "I told you so"
when things went wrong because
I didn't take your advice. You always
warned me of the consequences.

I thank you for the night you held
me so close to your body, and
told me everything was going to
be o.k. You made me feel so
loved, and you even told me you
loved me. I thank you for the
love, the compassion, the trust in
which you showed.

I thank you for standing up for
me. Telling everyone I was the
best friend you could ever have.
Letting everyone know that we
were, in fact, best friends. I thank
you so much for all that you
have given to me. With out you,
I would just be a lonely soul,
searching for someone to trust.
Some one to love. Some one
to love me. Someone to
run to with my problems.
Someone to care for.

But thanks to you, I have found
everything I need, all in one.
Thank you so much.

Thank you Brett. I will always be there if you ever need me, and I will always love you, in that way that friends love.

Thank You For Your Comments.......
A friend like that is hard to find, and I am so very happy I have found him. We haven't been friends but for a little over a year, and I treasure every moment!
