Я не могу этого сделать, - сказала она. - Даже при одной мысли об этом мне становится холоднее, чем от ветра. Не ходи дальше, Элвин. - В этом нет никакой логики. - безжалостно настаивал Элвин. - Ну чем тебе повредит, если ты дойдешь до конца этого коридора и посмотришь наружу.

From hugs to high fives to all the crazy stuff that you do together – the times you spend with friends are going to become your life’s most awesome memories.


1) It’s been a long time since

You and I have been friends

We are proof of the fact that

All good things don’t always end

Through happiness and sadness

Through highs and lows

I’m here for you forever

Is what I want you to know



2) Living life without a friend like you

Would be like having a wine gone bad

Attending school and college without you

Would have surely driven me mad

Flipping a photo album without you in it

Would be like watching a rainbow in sepia

Not sharing all my problems with you

Would put me in a massive dilemma

Every aspect of life would be empty

Blank and totally colorless

If you weren’t there in my life

To fill it up with sublime happiness



3) For being a friend worthy of

Being thanked every single day

I want to show my gratitude to you

In every possible way

I don’t know where to start

Maybe you could suggest something too

Start thinking and make a list of stuff

That I can do to pamper you



4) When I lost belief in myself

You became my self-esteem

When my eyes were shedding tears

You became their gleam

When my ego took a beating

You stoked it like fire

You trusted me even when

The world called me a liar

When I became difficult

You showed patience with me

I guess, best friends forever

We’re meant to be


5) The quirks and the laughs

The smiles and the selfies

The crazy and the cool

The fun and the memories

The weird and the awesome

The tears and the frowns

The hits and the misses

The ups and the downs

Our friendships has been

One awesome ride

I’m glad I have friends

Like you by my side



6) You have stood by me like a rock

Even though I never asked you to

Not just when I was right

But when I was wrong too

You have done everything

That is expected from a friend

To how much I love you

There is simply no end



7) There was a time when I thought

That friendship was just about laughs and smiles

But now I’ve realized how the tears and sobs

Are also what makes it meaningful and worthwhile

Together, we’ve not just smiled and laughed

But also fought, argued and cried

No matter what, I’ve always seen you

Right beside me, after the tears have dried

For the way you’ve stood by me all the time

I don’t know what to say or do

Maybe it’ll take a lifetime to repay the gratitude

But for now, I’ll start with saying Thank You



8) You are the one because of whom

Our fights have never lasted long

You are the reason why

Our friendship is so strong

You are the cause for us to be

Close, even when we are miles apart

It is because of you that I

Live life carefree, with all my heart

You are the only person

Who gets credit for our friendship

For making it the most

Sweetest and cutest relationship


9) Like yin and yang, like black and white

Like rough and smooth, like day and night

Like easy and tough, like hot and cold

Like low and high, like silver and gold

Like light and dark, like weak and strong

Like bright and dull, like short and long

We’re opposites, but totally complementary

Best Friends Forever, we’re meant to be


10) No matter how much time

We spend together

Whether hours or days

Enough, it seems never

I don’t know how I’d cope

If you were to go away

That moment would usher in

My life’s most painful days

Let’s promise each other

That regardless of where

Life takes us, for each other

We’ll always be there



11) I want to make the world jealous

I want to make everyone envious

To the whole world I want to announce

The reason my step has a bounce

I want to shout for everyone to hear

The name my heart holds dear

It’s you, a friend whose smiles

Makes everything in life worthwhile


12) No matter what life throws at me

The memories of our friendship will always

Help me remain happy and strong

Even while facing tough and bad days

The smiles, the laughs the sheer awesomeness

Of the times we’ve spent together

Is something that I’ll hold close to my heart

Till the end of time, forever and ever

13) From silly habits to crazy rants

Patiently tolerating everything

That I could throw at you

Is why you are, my darling

If you weren’t my bestie

I just don’t know what I’d do

Depressed is what I feel even if

I try to imagine life without you



14) A spouse is a better half

Is what people usually say

But in this traditional idea

I don’t believe in any way

My better half right now

Is none other than you

A friend, who supports me

In everything I do

Thank you


15) Whether it is a new app

Or games on my PlayStation

Using them without you

Wouldn’t make them as much fun

Whether it is checking out people

Or asking them out on a date

Without you all these things

In my life, would have to wait

Thanks for being a friend

Who I can’t enjoy life without

There’s no one else like you

Of that I have no doubt



16) Gratitude is not enough

A loving gesture is not sufficient

A simple note of thanks

Will look too complacent

To convey my gratefulness to you

I will have to do something drastic

I owe you something big

For being a friend so fantastic

Thank you

17) For being more like family

And less of a friend

Looking out for me always

At every corner and bend

I should have expressed

My thoughts, a long ago

For having you, how thankful

I feel, I want you to know



18) To reveal my real friends

I didn’t need adversity

I knew you were my true friend

Irrespective of a calamity

To see who I could trust

I didn’t need trouble to arise

The fact that I could depend on you

Was no surprise

Like us, very few people

Can proudly say

That they are friends forever

Come what may



19) A friend who tells me off

When I am blatantly wrong

A friend who gives me solace

When the nights are long

A friend who gets involved

Even when there is no need

To the fine details of my life

A friend who pays heed

You are, all this and more

On you, my life truly depends

I’m glad fate chose you

To be my bestest friend



20) Thanks for doing me a favor

By once again being my savior

Thanks for supporting me

Not just once but repeatedly

Thanks for cutting me some slack

Thanks for always watching my back

Thanks for helping me in times of need

You are a special friend, indeed

Thank you

21) My best friend forever

That you are

The best thing to happen

In my life so far

My daily dose

Of happiness and inspiration

My dear friend

You are the one

Thank you


22) If I hadn’t met you

Things would have been bad

I don’t who I would’ve called

Whenever I was sad

I would’ve had no one

To tell my secrets to

By my side if I didn’t

Have an amazing friend like you



23) I can’t think of a better way

Than writing a sweet poem to say

Thank you, for everything you’ve done

Since the day, our friendship had begun

I’ll never be able to repay this debt

No matter what I do, I bet

I promise, to be a friend to you

Like you’ve been to me, so true

Thank you


24) More than a gift

More than a journey

More than a treat

More than just destiny

Our friendship is

Something special

It makes everything

Seem so magical

Here’s to you

A friend unlike any other

Here’s to us

Friends forever

25) No one would laugh at my jokes

No one would call me pretty

All my hidden talents and qualities

No one would be able to see

No one would know my secrets

No one would call me at midnight

No one would ever know

What I want in my Mr. Right

No one would care about my crush

No one would realize my preferences

If I didn’t have a friend like you

I would miss life’s best experiences



26) The test of time

Has been survived

Of each other’s company

Although we were deprived

The test of distance

Has been won by us

Even though were apart

We didn’t make a fuss

Every curve ball that life

Threw at our friendship

In fact, made it

A much stronger relationship



27) If I had to give

Our friendship a label

I would call it a journey

Awesome and special

It I had to give it

A heading or a title

I would call it a road trip

Carefree and incredible

Our friendship, if I had to

In just one line, summarize

I’d say it is my

Life’s best prize



28) A sturdy wall

An unshakable pillar

Is what you have been to me

By being a friend so dear

A roof on the head

A robust parapet

You are one the most

Reliable people I have met

You have always shielded me

And been protective

A heartfelt thank you for that

Is what I want to give

29) Just like how a sunflower always

Looks in the direction of the sun

I too look towards a friend like you

When I want to have some fun

Just like how a mouse always goes

In the direction it smells cheese

I too look for a friend like you

For my happiness to increase

Just like how the moon and stars

Always go together

We will be friends for eternity

Now and forever



30) Friends like you are worth

Their weight in gold

My valuable keepsake

Even when I become old

Way more precious

Than gems or pearls

Life’s true meaning

They help unfurl

Awesome and fun

Truly priceless

For money can’t buy

Friendship’s happiness


A poem can be a perfect thank you note, whether you're glad for a nice dinner with friends (see Bernadette Mayer's “We Eat Out Together”) or thanking a parent .

Friendship Poems

A Simple Thank-You, My Friend

thank you for being a friend poems

thank you quotes for the birthday greetings
Pay raise thank you note
thank you for coming to my daughters birthday party
Thanks for visiting our home
thank you for putting a smile on my face quotes
Thank you rhymes for teachers
words that say thank you
Thank you mum and dad wedding poem

I wrote a poem for my best friend for her 30th birthday this year and wanted to share it with you in case you wanted to share it with “your person.”

“I believe there are no random meetings in our lives—that everyone we touch, who touches us, has been put in our path for a reason. The briefest encounter can open a door, or heal a wound, or close a circle that was started long before your birth.” — Susanna Kearsley, Every Secret Thing

This is why I love my best friend: She's the kind of person who walks into the room and says, “Here we are!”

I know how blessed I am to have this kind of a friend, one who hears and sees; not everyone has that. Best friendship is a blessing. I do think, though, that no matter how old we get, there's always room for that kind of real connection.

Beautiful people don’t just exist—they are everywhere. You never know when you’ll run into someone who makes you remember what love really means.

If every relationship was first grounded in friendship, the world would be a brighter place.

In honor of the girl who has heard and seen me through the hardest, darkest moments of my life, who's helped me become a friend to myself, this poem. A "thank you." An "I love you."

And if you want to celebrate your person with poetry, go visit my shop for prints of handwritten poems and other words of hope and heart. Your BFF will love it.

A Poem for My Best Friend

Sitting here, no words seem right because

I’m trying to bottle into words

What you’ve meant to me in

All these seasons of my life.

You have been every color and shade of


Every kind of medicine for a soul.

Your heart has helped mine to remember

How to be whole.

When I thought it was the end,

You helped me figure out

How to start again.

Let me tell you who you are

To someone who loves

Everything you are:

You are Grace embodied, and

Even if you have tears in your eyes,

Dear friend,

Grace would look like you.

Even when you forget who you are,

I know your truth, and

If you asked me how I knew,

I’d have tears in my eyes

Trying to bottle into words

Everything you’ve given and

Everything you’ve been.

My friend,

If I were to offer one word to describe you,

There is no hesitation and only affirmation:


Above all else,

You are love without end —

The kind that sometimes shows up as Grace

On an old friend’s doorstep,

The kind with no conditions that walks in

For tea but leaves you with so much more.

The only kind of love that really exists:

This is what you’ve been to me, and

If you ever forget your name,

Just ask me:

I would know.

. . .

Tell me:

Which part of this poem is your favorite?

Tell me in the comments. I read every single one, and I’d love to know!

Be someone who reminds someone else what love really means.

With love,


I think you'll like these too...

Thank you friend for everything I am glad you really cared Thanks for never leaving me Thank you for being there.

Poems That Say Thank You

Let's Not Wait

We will meet again my friend,
A hundred years from today
Far away from where we lived
And where we used to play.

We will know each others' eyes
And wonder where we met
Your laugh will sound familiar
Your heart, I won't forget.

We will meet, I'm sure of this,
But let's not wait till then . . .
Let's take a walk beneath the stars
And share this world again.

A Friend's Smiling Face

There is a place I like to go
Whenever I'm feeling
Lonely or sad--
A place of sunshine,
Laughter and love
That always leaves me
Feeling glad.
There I share my secrets,
Hopes and fears,
For this warm, inviting place--
Always waiting, always welcoming--
is found in my friend's smiling face.
The world is a more beautiful place
because of friends like you

Hold On

Friends come and go,
but with a precious few you should hold on.
Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle,
because the older you get,
the more you need the people
who knew you when you were young.

The Glory of Friendship

(Ralph Waldo Emerson)

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,
nor the kindly smile nor the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one
when he discovers that someone else believes in him
and is willing to trust him.

A Friend Who Cares

(Henri Nouwen)

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives
mean the most to us,
we often find that it is those who,
instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures,
have chosen rather to share our pain
and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
The friend who can be silent with us
in a moment of despair or confusion,
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement,
who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing
and face with us the reality of our powerlessness,
that is a friend who cares.

We are Friends

(Jeanette Winterson)

We are friends and I do like to pass the day with you
in serious and inconsequential chatter.
I wouldn't mind washing up beside you,
dusting beside you,
reading the back half of the paper while you read the front.
We are friends and I would miss you,
do miss you and think of you very often.

What Is a Friend?

(Katherine Davis)

A friend is a person of great understanding
Who shares all our hopes and our schemes,
A companion who listens with infinite patience
To all of our plans and dreams.
A true friend can make all our cares melt away
With the touch of a hand or a smile,
And with calm reassurance make everything brighter,
And life always seem more worthwhile.
A friend shares so many bright moments of laughter
At even the tiniest thing--
What memorable hours of light-hearted gladness
And pleasure this sharing can bring!
A friend is a cherished and precious possession
Who knows all our hopes and fears,
And someone to treasure deep down in our hearts
With a closeness that grows through the years.


A friend is someone who listens,
A friend is someone who cares.
A friend is someone who understands,
A friend is someone who shares.
It's nice to have a special friend
To tell all your secrets to.
It's nice to know that someone you like,
Is someone who really likes you.
A friend is someone you call on the phone
To talk about nothing at all.
A friend is someone who cheers you up.
And makes you feel ten feet tall.
Everyone would like to have
A special friend it's true
But if you want a special friend,
You need to be one, too.


(B. J. Morbitzer)

Life is sweet,
just because of the friends we have made,
And the things which in common we share;

We want to live on, not because of ourselves,
But because of the people who care.

It's giving and doing for somebody else--
On that, all life's splendor depends . . .
And the joy of this world,
when you've summed it all up,
Is found in the making of friends.

from Friends Never Say Goodbye

(Music by Elton John)

There isn't much I haven't shared
With you along the road.
And through it all there'd always be
Tomorrow's episode.
Suddenly that isn't true
There's another avenue
Beckoning the great divide.
Ask no questions, take no side
Who's to say who's right or wrong
Whose course is braver run.
Still we are, have always been
Will ever be as one.

What is done has been done for the best
Though the mist in my eyes might suggest
Just a little confusion
about what I'll lose.
But if I started over
I know I would choose
The same joy the same sadness
each step of the way
That fought me and taught me
that friends never say,
Never say goodbye.

Field of Joys

Sometimes along life's pathways there will come a friend,
Who gets to know you inside out, right to the very end,
The depth and height and width of all that makes you 'you',
And they continue liking you no matter what you do.

They get to see inside of you where others dare not go,
And soon they are a part of you and you find you love them so.
They let you laugh and share your joy, they help you through the day,
And no matter what you've said or done, they never turn away.

Sometimes when things are getting rough, and when the crying's done,
They'll join with you in games and play, just like when you were young,
And had a special playmate who would run the field of joys,
That children find around the bend with other girls and boys.

They're honest and they're faithful, they try never to betray
The precious trust between you as you live from day to day.
It's so hard to express sometimes, and though it might sound odd,
My best way to describe them is they are a gift from God.

And so, my friend, I'm writing with a thankful heart to say
I'm so glad I have a friend like you to help me on my way.
When the ocean of life was rough thank you for being my buoy
But mostly thanks for running with me through the Field of Joys.

My Special List

I have a list of folks I know all written in a book,
And every now and then�I go and take a look.
That is when I realize these names, they are a part,
not of the book they're written in�but taken from the heart.

For each Name stands for someone�who has crossed my path sometime,
and in that meeting they have become�the reason and the rhyme.
Although it sounds fantastic�for me to make this claim,
I really am composed�of each remembered name.

Although you're not aware�of any special link,
just knowing you, has shaped my life�more than you could think.
So please don't think my greeting�as just a mere routine,
your name was not�forgotten in between.

For when I send a greeting�that is addressed to you,
it is because you're on the list�of folks I'm indebted to.
So whether I have known you�for many days or few,
in some ways you have a part�in shaping things I do.

I am but a total�of many folks I've met,
you are a friend I would prefer�never to forget.
Thank you for being my friend!

Count Your Friends

It is not wise to count your friends
on a bright sunny day.
When the sky is blue
and smiles come so easily.
Instead wait for a storm,
when the clouds are dark
and the day grows cold.
Laughter is not heard
in your heavy heart.
Then when a friend comes
and stands beside you
and lifts your spirits to the sky
and laughter is in your heart,
he or she deserves the name . . . friend.


(B.J. Morbitzer, used with permission)

If nobody smiled and nobody cared
and nobody helped us along.
If every moment looked after itself and
good things always went to the strong;

If nobody cared just a little about you
and nobody cared about me,
and we stood alone, in the battle of life,
what a dreary old world this would be

Live is sweet, just because of the friends we have made
and the things which in common we share,
We want to live on, not because of ourselves
but because of the people who care.

It is doing and giving for somebody else
on which all of life's splendor depends.
The joy of this world, when you've summed it all up
is found in the making of friends


There are friends who pass like ships in the night,
Who meet for a moment then sail out of sight,
With never a backwards glance of regret,
Friends we know briefly, then quickly forget.

Then there are friends that sail together,
Through quiet waters and stormy weather.
Helping each other through joy and strife,
These are the friends who bring meaning to life.


(B. J. Morbitzer)

There's a miracle called Friendship
That dwells within the heart,
And you don't know how it happens
Or when it gets its start.

But the happiness it brings you
Always gives a special lift,
And you realize that friendship
Is God's precious gift.

Thank You for the Light

Into the dim lit, bare walls of my world,
You entered, bringing light and life to me,
The vivid colors, painted with a swirl
Of wit and charm, of personality,

With tender care, you added comfort, warmth,
And images that line the now bright walls.
I look upon them fondly, bringing forth
A thankfulness that you walk in these halls

With me; our friendship has become a part
Of my world now; it has its special place,
Within my being, life, and in my heart,
Your name hangs right beside your smiling face.

Remembering just how drab these walls had been,
I have to thank you for the light, my friend.

Friendship is a Golden Chain

(Helen Steiner Rice)

Friendship is a golden chain--
The links are friends so dear,
And like a rare and precious jewel
It's treasured more each year.

Time can't destroy its beauty
For as long as memory lives,
Years can't erase the pleasure
That the joy of friendship gives.

For friendship is a priceless gift
That can't be bought or sold,
But to have an understanding friend
Is worth far more than gold!

The Key to Friendship

The key to friendship..
is not in the hand you hold,
but how you hold the hand.
It's not in the tears you dry,
but all the reasons why.

It's not how you make a person smile
but whether or not it's worthwhile.
It's not in the conversation,
but in the way you listen.
It's not in the laughter,
but what comes before and everything after.

The key to friendship..
is not in two people relating,
but in two hearts communicating.
Thank you for being that very special friend,
who understands the key to friendship,
and how to unlock everything within.


(based on a poem © Sandra Lewis Pringle)

If I could catch a rainbow,
I would do it just for you
and share with you its beauty
on the days you're feeling blue . . .

If I could build a mountain
you could call your very own
a place to find serenity,
a place to be alone . . .

If I could take your troubles,
I would toss them in the sea
But all these things I'm finding--
are impossible for me,

I can not build a mountain
or catch a rainbow fair
But let me be what I know best--
A friend that's always there.


When we share laughter, there's twice the fun;
When we share success, we surpass what we've done.
When we share problems, there's half the pain;
When we share tears, a rainbow follows rain.

When we share dreams, they become more real;
When we share secrets, it's our hearts we reveal.
If we share a smile, that's when our love shows;
If we share a hug, that's when our love grows.

If we share with someone on whom we depend,
that person is always a very true friend.
And what draws us closer and makes us all care,
Is not what we have, but the things we share.

Today I share this poem with you . . .
To show how much I care . . .
And to thank for sharing
Your friendship with me :-)

from Count Me In

(Gary Lewis and the Playboys)

If you need someone to count on
Count me in
Someone you can rely on
Through thick and thin.

When you start to count the ones
That you might ever doubt
If you think of counting me
Count me out.

If you need someone to count on
When you're down
And all your other friends you've lost
Count me found.

Just be sure you count on me
When you're down and out
Count me in through thick and thin
Or it don't count.

Good Friends

Good friends are one in a million.
Good friends have stories to share.
Good friends know the path to happiness,
and they walk with you all the way there.

Good friends are lives overlapping.
Good friends share laughter and tears.
Good friends bring emotions so deep that
the trust keeps growing over the years.

The Gift of Happiness

If I had a magic wand
This is what I'd do
I'd put a dream into a box
And send it straight to you

When you get right down to it
There's nothing I'd rather do
Than give you a little happiness
Because I get so much from you


(Henson Towne)

Around the corner I have a friend
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone
And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well
As in the days when I rang his bell,
And he rang mine.

If, we were younger then,
Now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.
"Tomorrow" I say "I will call on Jim"
"Just to show that I'm thinking of him"
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.

Around the corner!--yet miles away,
"Here's a telegram sir"--"Jim died today".
And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.


Wherever we go,
whatever we do,
we're gonna do it together
Through thick and through thin,
all out or all in,
Through good or bad
or happy or sad
we'll muddle through
whatever we do
Wherever We Go!


(Edwin Markham)

He drew a circle that shut me out--
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in!

The Seeds of Friendship

Seeds God has planted here on earth
Cannot be measured by earthly worth.
They were planted deeply in your friend's heart,
By God's love placed there from the start.

Value your friends, honor their decisions,
Never try to make their dreams your revisions,
Respect their feelings, never make demands,
Hold their love tightly in your hands.

Never be angry if you don't talk to them each day,
For a heart can be loving even from far away.
Trust in friendship, send a piece of your heart,
This is how friendship was intended from the start.

Hold their memory in your heart and mind,
Continue to love them all the time,
See them for what they really are--
True friends are Angels sent from afar!

Friends Are Angels

Our friends are like angels
Who brighten our days
In all kinds of wonderful,
Magical ways.

Their thoughtfulness comes
As a gift from above,
And we feel we're surrounded
By warm, caring love.

Like upside-down rainbows,
Their smiles bring the sun,
And they fill ho-hum moments
With laughter and fun.

Friends are like angels
Without any wings,
Blessing our lives
With the most precious things.

Be a Friend

Your friends are very precious things;
Their love is like the rarest gem.
But friends are hard to find and keep
Unless you are a friend to them.

Thanks for being There

The world is moving faster now;
We're on a changing course.
But you have helped me deal with life;
You've been a stable force.

When I have had to follow new directions,
you were there.
When the world was hard on me,
You always seemed to care.

When nothing held together or
Made the slightest bit of sense;
You always helped restore
My inner confidence.

Everyone needs someone
Who's reliable and true.
Through the moments I've endured,
I'm grateful there was you.

Our Friendship

Our friendship is soothing
Like a warm gentle breeze
A soft,tender rustle
Thru the leaves of the trees . . .

Our friendship can bloom
Like a beautiful spring day
Yours and mine did
In such a wonderful way . . .

Our friendship brings rainbows
After the storm
It appears in the winter
To keep our hearts warm . . .

Our friendship withstands hardships
As the winter wind blows
like a candle in the window
With its soft warm glow.

I Call You Friend

A friend like you is a special gift
Worth more than silver or gold!
You're always there when things are tough
With a comforting hand to hold.

You know my thoughts before I speak,
You share my hopes and fears,
And when life brings us joy or grief,
You share my smiles and tears.

You're always there with a hug to share,
You're there with a hand to lend,
I could never be happy without you,
I'm so happy to call you MY FRIEND!

Magic in Our Friendship

There is magic in our friendship
this my friend, I know . . .
For in my heart
warm feelings always flow.

There is something magical
that lights your way
and this magic grows bigger
each and every day.

That's the magic I feel
when I'm with you..
This magic feeling is because
I've found a friend in you.

My Wish for You

I wish you happiness--
The kind that's deep within your soul
and shines through your eyes.

I wish you serenity
and a sense of perspective
that calms you and lends you understanding
in the most difficult times.

I wish you success
in every facet of your life;
Satisfaction and contentment
in everything you do.

I wish you dreams
with the promise of their fulfillment;
a lifetime of extraordinary memories
and a path which leads to beautiful tomorrows.

Above all I wish you could see
What a difference you make in my life
and how grateful I am to know you.

A Part of My Life

Somehow, out of all the twists and turns
our lives could have taken,
and out of all the chances
we might have missed,
it almost seems like we were given
a meant-to-be moment . . .
to meet, to get to know each other,
and to set the stage for a special togetherness.
I am so thankful you're in my life.

Friends are like MATH!

They multiply your joy,
And divide your sorrow . . .
They subtract the past,
And add to tomorrow . . .
They calculate the need
Deep in your heart,
And are always greater
Then the sum of their parts!

Three Little Words

I Think we're close enough that
we can discuss our relationship
freely without feeling embarrassed.

I hope I don't make you uncomfortable
when I go a step further and say those
'Three Little Words' that sum up how
I feel about having you as a friend . . .
