Thank You Old Friend

You entered my life

At a time of strife

Thank you for being a friend


When the cold wind blow

When life lost its glow

Thank you for staying around


My Knight’s bright shield turned to rust

And love's young dream into dust

Thank you for understanding


When darkness descended

Both hands you extended

Thank you for shining your light


You cut through the pain

Breaking the chain

Thank you for helping me see


You offered your shoulder

When life grew colder

Thank you for being strong


You captured my face

And you saw the blank space

Thank you for making me smile


My rock in time of plight

Your friendship a delight

Thank you for giving me hope


And when the time was right

To spread my wings and fly

Though tears blurred your eye (s)

Thank you for waving goodbye

A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are that's what a true friend is...I love this tag line--When the cold wind blow

When life lost its glow

Thank you for staying around

This poem made me think of all the friends that have stayed and parted in my life, and then I realized that I was just sitting staring off. Thank you for bringing back the memories. Jamie

Welcome my friend, I believe the bad times helps you to appreciate the good times. Travelling on this journey, I'm one of the lucky one,I'm please to say, the good out-weighted the bad, and of course I found my prince and life is good, but thank you for caring.
