A Message To My Friend.

 

I really want you to believe

Exactly how much you have achieved.

 

You met with Death, showed him the finger,

In his presence didn’t linger.

 

You fought back and found your way,

Came back to the light of day.

 

Each small step, you’ve shown persistence,

Turned from that path of least resistance.

 

It’s been so hard for all these years

Not giving in to all those fears.

 

When you’ve been hit by ‘down’s attack

You’ve not succumbed but fought right back.

 

It’s not easy to keep trying

But I’ll tell you something, I’m not lying,

 

All my support I’ll always send

To you ‘cause you’re my life-long friend.

 

I want to add a little note

For you will always get my vote,

 

You make me laugh, you make me smile,

With that sense of humour, unique style!
