Thank You Poem by D.L. Aceves

You were always there for me
When times were very bad.
No matter what the situation was,
It was you I always had.

You always paid attention
And allowed me to be myself,
In certain ways I couldn't do
With anybody else.

When I was at my worst
And wasn't feeling strong,
You came along and gave me strength
And helped me to go on.

I'm glad I've had the chance
To have known someone like you;
Someone I could depend on;
Someone so pure and true.

If ever I should wonder
Whether my life has been worthwhile,
I'll quickly stop and think of you,
And then begin to smile.

Now I'd like to add
Just a few more things:

Thanks—for being a perfect friend,
And thanks—for all the joy you bring.
Thank you very much;
Thanks—for everything.

Thank you.
