The first time I met you, I thought nothing of it;
You were just another person in this world I had met.
Little did I know from that first day, you would
Become a good friend - important in many ways.
The days went by and still you were there;
Many tears and laughter in time did we share.
Gradually you revealed some of your dreams and hopes;
While in some my lowest times it
Was you who helped me cope.
It is you who can always make me laugh
When this world gets me down and life seems rough.
I'm so thankful for the day that you first passed my way,
And all the times you have changed my dark clouds into rays; It's so often neglected to appreciate someone so true;
So I write this poem to say friend- thank you.
