Dear Friend

I was touched by your solicitude

You become my raft in the rapids of life

My army when I go to war

My peace in the midst of strife

The shore to my shipwrecked soul

A bridge to a lifelong goal

The finish of my olympic run

The shine when there is no sun

A rope when I start to fall

You\'re my friend and all

You bandaged my wounds

You kissed my bruises

And admired all my scars

You\'re not just my friend

You\'re an angel in a human form
