My dear friend, and my ever-listening ear,

All the times you’ve been there, and all the times you’ve cared

Never have I thought twice about having you for a friend

and never have I wished for someone better

Laughs and tears shared over the years

7th 8th 9th 10th and now 11th

Year after year and month after month,

for you I will always be thankful

Don’t let life get you down, there’s always someone hurting worse

and always I will stand by your side

My homework I should be doing,

but cheering you up is far more rewarding

“You’ve got a friend in me..”

No matter what, through guys and school

through thick and thin

Now I must go, my poem writing must come to an end

Much more I could write, but I might be going

I love you Brittany

Sometimes, or in my case, most of the time, I take my friends for granted. I don’t often take the time to thank them for who they are..but I have a few minutes and I thought I would seize the opportunity. If I fail to mention you specifically, please accept my utmost apologies, I am thankful for you, I probably just ran out of time.

I have so many friends, and I am thankful for each one of you in different ways.

Brittany-I don’t know where to begin or what to say! Thanks for being there throughout the years. I am so glad we have stayed friends, and for all the times we’ve spent together. Thank you for confronting me and for encouraging me. Thanks for listening, and for laughing!

To Mrs. Hume, Mrs.Harmless, Mrs. Kessler, and Mrs.Woodall-you have all helped chisel off my rough edges, and challenged me on why I believe what I believe. You have listened to my stories, and shared in my tears. You have always been willing to chat, and just be there. I am so thankful for you all. Your examples have continued to impact me, and help me grow into a more godly person.

Ok-I know I used the word thank like a million times above..but I am truly thankful for all my friends and teachers!!
