Inadequate Words For Thank You - Poem by Shelly Price
I know the words I'd like to say to you...
to give thanks for all that you've done.
But each time I try to say the words...
they escape me as fast as they come.
How could I ever thank you enough?
It's because of you I now feel whole.
You encouraged me to find my strength...
so I could embrace the depths of my soul.
You've taught me so many lessons for life...
you made me believe I deserved to be first.
You forced me to test my broken wings...
and hugged me when I was at my worse.
You paint the world a colorful rainbow...
It's because of you I now can dream.
You never gave up on who you knew I was...
knowing I was not the person I seemed.
Could there ever be adequate words of thanks...
for being there with me when times were tough?
Everything that I feel I want to say to you...
doesn't quit measure up to being enough.
How could I possibly just say thanks?
Thanks for being there through all my tears.
Thanks for ten thousand little things you've done...
and for putting up with me over the years?
Thanks for changing with me as I changed...
and for NOT accepting some of my flaws.
Thanks for not loving me because you had to...
but still loving me...'just because'.
A million thanks for never giving up on me...
though I know you've been at wits end.
Thanks for always being honest to me, about me...
but mostly thanks for truly being my friend.
