Written in Summer 2004....about a friend....


You make me smile/ when all I want to do is cry

You make me laugh/ when all I want to do is escape

You make me see the brighter side/ when all I want is to allow the shadows to overtake me

You make such a differnce in my life/ for this I thank you

You don't know how much you have changed me in this short while

You've opened my eyes/ to see a different side of culture

You are patient with me/ and don't mind teaching me

Thank you so much
