There are days I feel such agony,
That just linger all the time,
My heart gets filled with torment,
There’s no relief that I can find.
Then I open and check my email,
And there’s a card from you,
Or just a little hi or hello,
And perhaps a smile or two.
It's then my sadness leaves me awhile,
And my mind just drifts far away,
To visit in dreams my precious friends,
That live so far from me today.
If you could only feel what you do,
And the blessings you give to me,
If you only knew how you touched me,
And made my burdens feel free.
In my heart I feel such love for you,
For taking the time to care,
For someone you never met in life,
A treasure you are so dear.
You put a smile upon my face dear friend,
And I put aside for awhile my tears,
And try to find a special way,
To say thank you for special years.
So today I write this special bouquet,
In honor of all of you,
That have helped me walk this valley,
And helped me make it through.
