A dedication to my friends, the ones who make me smile :)

In the times where life takes the guise

Of an endless hell

When I've reached my wit's end

And my frustration continues to swell

In those moments when I'm beyond stressed

I can still smile and carry on

And say that I'm truly blessed

You reach for me with a wide embrace

And in a world of hurt and anger

I know that within your arms is a safe place

On days when I wonder if all I'm working for

Is worth my while

There are memories that lift me up and carry me,

Memories of your joyous smiles

On the darkest days, when I hit my wall

I know I can count on you, I know you'll be there

To catch me when I fall

I have big dreams and I love who I am

I keep my head high and grow stronger every day

If you were not here, if we'd never met,

I know it would not be this way

On the nights with little sleep

I have memories of our times together

Little pick-me-ups that I save and keep

I owe my every success to you,

You made me unique, you made me me

Without your encouraging love and care

I simply could not be
