Thankyou for saving me


Before I met you I was stuck in a rut

Not knowing which route to take

I don't believe meeting you was just a stroke of luck

I would say it's more like fate

Without you I wouldn't have got this far

You showed me better ways to deal

Things I would never have done before

Things that would help me begin to heal

Even though I seem to always have setbacks

And revert back to my old ways

Because of you I know my life is not my past

No matter what my mind tries to say

I know it must be so hard bring my friend

I know I'm not the easiest person to keep close

I can't express how much you are a godsend

You stick by me for reasons only you know

Sometimes I know I push you away

Not because I don't love you

I really want you to stay

But because you deserve

More than what I do

I don't want you to worry or feel like you have to look after me

I want for you to be able to lean on me too because that's what friendship is supposed to be.

I know that if you stick by me a little longer

And it could be a while

But I will get stronger

And il be able to make you smile


Thankyou for all you do

Thankyou for being you

              This is also very good
              Marianne, I have never
              Had a best friend
              The closest to that
              For me is my family
