Friends like you come along once in a lifetime...
And I want you to know how glad I am that
you came along in mine. Friends like you are
so valuable and so rare. You provide me with
things that can't compary with any other
happiness in my life. I am so thankful for all
the wonderful things about you. You understand
my difficulties and always give me the benefit
of the doubt. There are so many times when
you're the only one who knows what I'm going
through. You're what communication and trust
are all about.
If you sense that I'm hurting, you do whatever
you can to help me. And you don't hold things
against me. You help me prop up my courage if
it starts to fade, and you have such a gentle
way of providing reassurance.
You walk beside me when I could use a
little guidance and direction in my life.
And, more than anyone else, you support
me in my attempts to do what is right.
You can multiply my smiles and you constantly
add to my favorite memories. You make me
feel like I really am somebody who matters.
Then you quietly prove to me how beautiful
that feeling is. You really are amazing.
And I wish I had a way to thank you for all this.
I feel like it's important to let you know
that, in you, I have come across a wonderful,
one-in-a-lifetime friend. The gift of that
friendship is the nicest thing anyone could
ever give... and I will cherish it all the days
of my life and all the years that I live
