| Shelley's Poem (smiles)
|Some times in our lives,
A person comes our way;
That becomes so much more,
Than an acquaintance for a day.
Most will be a companion,
But some will go the next part;
To bridge the distance to friendship,
So it becomes a matter of the heart.
I shall not forget your thoughtfulness,
And the time with me you've shared;
You opened up to me your life,
And showed me how much you cared.
Like an angel of mercy,
You took me in for a season;
Treated me like I was family,
A friend being your only reason.
Eternally I will be grateful,
For your compassion when key;
Your kindness when essential,
With a neighbor's love for me.
So I leave you with these words,
For you gave to me your best;
May God shower you with His love,
And keep you always blessed.
