Can I Say Thank You

Can I Say Thank You
Thank you for your patience
for your understanding way.
Thank you for your forgiveness
of my short comings every day.
Thank you for your kindness
you have extended from your heart.
Thank you for the respect
you've given me from the start.
Thank you for the lessons
you've taught me along the way.
The ability to laugh and be happy
I love you for every day.
Thank you for being my hero
who saves me in the night.
Then stands guard and keeps protecting
when the danger's far gone from sight.
Thank you for the words so perfect
you sent home when you were away.
For touching my heart and soul
in a needed and wanted way.
Thank you for being this person
who I dreamed of when dreaming was right.
For still being my knight come to save me
a damsel that's not right.
Thank you for staying still with me
you are my soul that's deep within.
I love you and thank you completely
you're the strength I draw on to live.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
