“My Priceless Gift”
This poem is for you, my Dearest and Best Friend,
The beautiful person who shares thoughts of gold
Who can relate to me like no other was able.
We share laughter together, like the little girls
We were so long ago, when we hid behind our dreams.
Never have you turned your back on me,
Or told me I was just not good enough ,
Or let me down. Steadfast, true, the special you.
Always holding steadfast to the belief, for the future
Though your sadness you have held so deep.
But those of us whom love you, hold you within our hearts.
I don’t think you really acknowledge, how beautiful you are
You have suffered so much pain, but you still have time,
To listen and show care, to others you respect and trust
And I love you for listening even when inside YOU are dying
And I look up to you because you are strong, and beautiful.
You truly epitomise the beauty of your heart and soul.
I hope you know and realise that I am always here for you
To listen to your laughter, and silent cries for help
In all the ways that I can be here, with no judgement
And I will always be the very best friend for you,
As you have been for me. An infinite blessing,
To me, my dear girl, with so much love to give.
And you in return, can be assured for all of life
Acceptance and unconditional love, with all of its meaning
I would not be the person I am today, without you by my side
My dearest and best friend, for all of infinity, for all of time.
