I cherish you, dear friend, and
I hope you know how much I care.
Our hearts are bound together,
By this friendship that we share.
The ups and the downs,
The laughter and the tears,
All have helped to strengthen,
Our bond throughout the years.
So many things I've shared with you.
You've listened with your heart.
And when things looked dark to me you
Found a way to show me the brighter part.
Friendship is the ultimate gift of love,
And is as precious as can be...
I hope you know how very much
Yours truly means to me.
So when you see these roses,
May their perfect beauty be
A reminder of how special
You will always be to me.
