You lined the clouds with silver, You pushed away the rain. You lifted some of my burdens and shared with me my pain . You gave me your most precious treasures, A value no man can adjust. Freely given without measure, your loyalty ,patience ,and trust. You eased my fears with confidence and held sacred all my flaws, Diminishing their apparent affect through eyes of a higher cause. You taught me how to appreciate all that one can be, Encouraged me through the eyes of love to invest in a possibility. Now I can line the clouds with silver and push away the rain again, For through you I have seen that the greatest gift is the gift of being a friend.
