Thank You For Being A Friend To Me

Thank you for being a friend to me,
when needing someone there.
My failing hopes to bolster
and my secret fears to share.

Thank you for being so good to me
when it was hard to know
the wisest course to follow,
what to do and where to go.

Thank you for giving me confidence
when I had lost my way.
Speaking the word that led me through
the tunnel of the day.

Thank you for all you did and said
to ease the weight for me.
Never intruding, but there in the
background helping quietly.

Thank you not only for sympathy
in times of grief and stress;
But for all you have meant to me
in terms of happiness.

Many a lovely day we’ve known
and many a laugh we’ve had.
Thank you for being the kind of friend
that shares the good and bad.

I’d like to be the sort of friend
That you have been to me;
I’d always like to be the help
That you are glad to be.

I’d like to mean as much to you
Each moment of the day,
As you have meant,
good friend of mine,
To me along the way.

And this is just the wish somehow
That I could but repay,
A portion of the gladness
You have strewn along my way.

And could I have one wish this year,
This only would it be:
I’d like to be the sort of friend
That you have been to me.
