During a recent bout with depression, a friend of mine came to the rescue and let me cry on her shoulder. She got me through it all and told me she cares. I really needed to know that someone cared. To her, I say Thank you!

This poem originally was published in Friendship Poems

Thank You
I could write for hours,
Use the finest words in Webster's,
Fill pages upon pages with verse -
Only two words are needed,
Two words are everything I want to say:

Thank you.

Two words, two syllables
So tiny,
In these words I say so many things -
You are very special,
Holding my hand when the world is too much,
Hugging me when I can not bear life:

Thank you.

I have shown you my heart of hearts,
The person inside I am afraid to reveal.
Your sweet words and sweet face,
Bringing me back from the edge,
All I can do is . . .

Thank you.

    It's 30 years on June 1 since I survived a bilateral mastectomy followed by 3 years of chemotherapy. My daughter is giving me a luncheon and invited those who supported me during that time. I'm reading "Thank You" to my supporters. It says it all.

    A poem surrendered from the depths of one's heart in loving friendship can ultimately be felt in the heart of another who should read it. It was if I could hear and feel you speaking the words. You touched my heart deeply with your poem. Your very talented. God Bless You..
