For My Best Friend

Sometimes when I'm too depressed

Or drowning in self-doubt,

I know that I can call your name

And you will pull me out.

You taught me

That I'm worth much more

Than what I'd always thought.

You gave me strenght

And confidence

That so long I had sought.

You showed me that I'm beautiful

Both outside and inside.

You proved that I'm not second best

Tim and Time again.

One day I will return to you

All you've given me.

I don't know in what time or from,

But I promise soon you'll see.

For richer, for poorer,

In sickness, In health,

Through all of the thick and thin,

I trust I can always count on you

And I am proud to call you a friend.
