Thank you to a Friend

Thank You to a Friend

How do you say thank you to a friend
Someone who has seen you at your best
And at your worst and did not walk away
How do you say thank you to someone
Who has given you a shoulder to cry on 
And also someone who has laughed with you
So hard that you both nearly cried
How do you say thank you to someone 
Who has called you out on all of your mistakes
But then gave you words of encouragement
How do you say thank you to someone 
Who is willing to just sit silently and listen 
Without judgement or criticism while you
Poured out you heart to them 
How do you say thank you to someone
Who means more to you 
Than they will ever know because
There are not enough words, thoughts, or gestures
To explain the impact she has had in your life
I hope this will give her a small idea of what 
She has meant to me
Thank you

    Well, it is a very meaningful poem coming from the heart. It's good to be grateful to our friends while they're still around. And the hardest thing is that, when we can't no longer tell them personally our deepest gratitude, for they're miles apart from us. Thank you for sharing, Thomas!
