Because you make me laugh, you make me think and smile and be a better me. You comfort me when I’m down, you lift me up and dry my tears. You celebrate my achievements, share my joys and all my triumphs.
You’ve given me a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold, and been my rock in sinking sand. You’ve never judged, you accept me for who I am. You make me brave and make me bold, you let me fall apart and help put me back together again.
You listen when I speak, you let me know you’re always there. You know my weaknesses and give me strength, you’re never jealous, never careless with my heart. You believe in me and help me to do the same. You walk beside me, you catch me when I fall.
You show me kindness, you show respect. You don’t pretend to be anyone else but you and I thank you, with all that’s in my heart . . . I thank you for being my friend.
