You were there when I needed you, day or night,
when I was wrong, you were always right.

You never doubted me, you never lied,
I don’t know what I’d do if our closeness ever died.

You never judged me, you never even tried,
you comforted me when I wanted to cry and hide.

You showed me the ways, you took care of me,
you taught me never to be ashamed, to be all I can be.

You were my friend, you were my teacher;
but most of all, you taught me that when someone leaves,
you don’t need medicine, the heart is it’s own healer.
