For A True Friend

For A True Friend

In My Life No One Has Touched Me,
With A Heart So Full Of Acceptance.
Your Friendship Has Always Set Me Free,
When My Heart Is In Shattered Remnants.
The Depth Of Compassion In Your Eyes,
Where Your Love For Me Is Shown.
Something You Have Never Tried To Disguise,
It Tells Me I Am Not Alone.
When Darkness Falls Upon My Heart,
Your strength Helps Me Find The Light.
Then My Healing Begins To Start,
As You Pull Me Close And Hold On Tight.
I Now Return Your Gift With Pleasure,
Please Smile And Know It's All True.
Your Friendship Has Always Been My Treasure,
Thank You For Giving Me You.
