I’d like to take this time to say
Thanks to you who helped share my day
And all who left while others stayed
Became my friends or passed away.
I’ll miss you all and hope you know
My prayers are with you as you go
Each one of you has taught me this
That life’s comprised of tears and bliss.
What matters most, as time rolls by
That we, in hope, good sense apply
For friendship is a crucial must
A gift of love and special trust !
