Ever since I can remember
You were always that special guy to
Make my days so much better.
You have this lovely way to look at life
With no tears, no pain
Nothing but a smile on your face.
When I would feel lost
You were there to guide my way
Especially on the darkest day
You were the one that changed
My tears into smiles
You were always there to catch
Me during my biggest falls.
You taught me to stay strong,
Never give up,
And to keep moving along.
You were there to take away the pain
That pain I couldn’t easily push away.
I felt like my world was falling apart
And that nothing could ever heal my broken heart.
I was on the edge of just giving up
I felt like my heart had
Gone through more than enough.
I made the wrong turns
Somehow you didn’t seem to care
You stayed beside me
Until the pain,sorrow, and heartbreaks
Were no longer there.
You’ve kept me alive
You’ve kept me sane
For that, in my heart you
Will always remain.
You became my best friend, but
With time you became my forever.
No matter where life takes us
No matter what I put you through
In the end I know I can always count on you.
