She is there during the dark
giving forth her light
no matter near or far
her words do shine so bright.

She may not know you well
but no matter, near or far
she will shine her light on you
such an Angel, a shining star.

She would not for a moment conceive
to let one alone to grieve,
she is there caring,
her life's passion sharing.

And if you are in moments of bliss
her smiles are not amiss,
she directs them straight at you
and prays for contentment true.

There is not one who can say it all,
that Pepper is there, no matter who calls;
she sheds light, love, compassion to you,
and calls each a friend, 'tis true.

Thank you Dear Friend, for all your deeds;
your light shines bright, a companion indeed!

Sunshine,
Very touching and filled with sentiment.  We all need a friend to lean on in times of trouble.  You are very lucky to have Pepper.

 Friends are friend forever if the Lord's the Lord of them and a friend will not say never cause the welcome will not end.

Sunshine~
It only stands to reason that we are
blessed with TWO rays of sunshine in
this poem.
Pepper is indeed such a sweetie and is
loved for her caring and sharing.
Sunshine ... your brilliance and heart
are showing !  
Love to you both !

A beautiful tribute, Sunshine to a great friend and person.  Pepper has been there amny times to lift me up when I thought no one even knew I fell.  So I'd like to say "thank you" to you and her both.

Thank you all, but without people like Pepper, there would be less Passion in our hearts.  It is to her all of the tributes must flow.

Sunshine

Thank you for this ray of sun
To shine upon a friend
Invisible to many an eye
But there until the end

She's there to pat you on the back
To give a needed hug
While all the while brushing
All her worries 'neath the rug

I'll never know another soul
As long as I shall live
Whose hallmark has been courage
Whose motto has been GIVE

Thanks Sunshine for this lovely tribute. It's quite hard to fit her kind of friendship into a verse.
