We have come so far in life
Through all the ups and downs
you ensured to be there by my side
Like a beacon, illuminating the path
I was always so confused about.
It took me so many years
never did I tell you
how much you mean to me
never did I thank you
for always staying by my side.
You were the one person I relied on
when I could not rely on me
You told me what I was scared to tell myself
You pushed me when I could not take that first step
Your presence engulfed me with the kind of faith
I did not know I had in me.
I remember falling face down
dragging myself along the path
when you would hold my hand
and moved along with me
You made the journey so easy.
Oftentimes I was so broken, so unsure,
so not me
but your trust in me never faltered
even though I could not trust me.
You, the thought of whom suffices to cheer me
You, the one that my heart turns to
when it needs a friend and a hug
You, that gives me the strength to conquer
You, that my soul seeks every time
it is in distress, worried and hurt
You, who saw me through the silent pain
the cold times of swarming emotions
You, that I couldn’t wait to share
my little triumphs, all my happiness
You, who inspired the faith
that I now have in my life
You, who always loved and understood
You, who needed no words to feel me
You, who always stayed
You, who never abandoned me
You, my one true friend
I never could say enough
I would not be me
To you I owe my life
all my happiness
and a big Thank You.
