I Want To Thank You


I want to thank you for the joy that you give
I want to thank you for being so positive
I want to thank you you’ve made me touch the sky
I want to thank you for always standing nearby

Lessons learn my true experience
These truths I hold as self-evidence
My love for you I’ll testify
Without your love I’d surely die
I want to thank you for bringing back my sunshine
Even though you are no longer mine
Thanks to you for being there through the strife
I really thank you for being the joy in my life

I want to thank you for the joy that you give
I want to thank you for being so positive
I want to thank you you’ve made me touch the sky
I want to thank you for always standing nearby

I want to thank you I cannot ever deny
I want to thank you with you I’ve learned how to fly
I want to thank you you’ve kept my brown eyes dry
I want to thank you on you I can always rely

You have a certain kind of special appeal
No words can express the thanks that I feel
My time with you seem so surreal
No alibis I need nothing to conceal
My word is my vow I’m down on one knee
With you till the end I will always be
Thanking you is the least I could do
For all the things you’ve done I do love you

I want to thank you for always being there
My Salome oath to you I shall declare
I want to thank you for showing that you care
You are second to none and no one can compare
From a mountaintop let me exclaim
Let the world know that I’d give you my last name
Shout it from the hilltop that do acclaim
Without your love my world would’ve never been the same

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
