Because you are my friend
Because you are my friend,
my life is enriched in a myriad of ways.
Like a cool breeze on a sweltering day,
like a ray of sunshine parting glowering clouds,
you lift me up.
In good times, we soar,like weightless balloonsover neon rainbows.
In bad times, you are soothing balm for my pummeled soul.
I learn so much from you;
you help me see old things in new ways.
I wonder if you are awareof the bright seeds you are sowing in me.
I'm a better person for knowing you,
so that everyone I interact with is touched by your good effect on me.
You relax me, refresh me, renew me.
Your bounteous heart envelops mein joy and love and peace.
May your life be filled with dazzling blessings,
just as I am blessed by being your friend.
