Because of you my friend dearest 
I am here on poetry soup, it’s the best
Because of you I am more confident
To write poems and know my strength

I am grateful for your friendship my dear
Thanks for the knowledge, it’s really clear
I’m so proud of you for being so good
Very talented, you are always in the mood

Leonora Galinta, Just remember this day
I’m your friend forever come what may
No one can destroy it even our enemy
I will fight for you and I will always pray

This is my only gift on your very special day
I know when you read this you will be happy
Thank you Nore,  and bear this in your mind
Many years to come our friendship still bind
