Thanks

Thank you.

Thank you for everything.

You might not think it's much,

but you

are a great friend.

---

Your presence calms me,

makes me feel at ease,

makes me want to smile.

---

I think I could still manage

to laugh

in the middle of nowhere,

surrounded by rabid dogs,

closing in on me –

if you were there.

---

I could have to experience anything

and if you were there

it would be okay,

I would be okay.

---

Thank you –

for my many smiles

that you've brought me,

in just the short time

since we have met.
