I may not have known you for many years,

but that doesn't mean you haven't know about my tears.

With me, you have been patient and gentle,

even when my troubles were only mental.

I hope that our friendship will be tightened,

and through it all, that your burdens may be lightened

You have taught me that I will not always be able to stand,

but no matter what, I can choose how hard I will land.

I want to thank you for all of your great advice,

and let you know that on our friendship there is no price.
