You always seem to know
When my tears start to flow
You offer me comforting words
Unlike any others I've heard
Bearing my pain as your own
Great compassion you have shown

For you I thank the stars above
And my friend for your love
Always seems to lift me up
Shows me the fullness of the cup
From which I have drunk so deep
So much so it made me weep

Can't turn back the hands of time
Can you hear those bells chime
They signal a whole new beginning
Forgive me for ever sinning
Offer a chance to begin again
I see that thanks to you my friend

No way I could ever repay
All you've done for me day after day
You never cease to amaze
With your heartfelt praise
Of the words that I write
Gives my soul a brighter light

Written for a very good friend of mine who has helped me through some tough times....I am forever grateful!!!

LoneWolf~
The friendship of which you write can't help but be very special.  I'm sure you've let this person know how you feel ... that's part of the tending of the garden of friendship that helps it to grow.
Nice job.

It is more special than any other I have ever had.  She is the greatest and I tell her all the time!!!  Almost made her cry with this one.  We feel the same way about each other....friends for life.  Thank you!!
