About the Poem

This was written to thank a friend on a forum of Passions in Poetry for listening, supporting me, cheering me up, and basically, just being there for me during a very trying time in my life. I wanted to do something special to thank him, and, since we're both poets, I thought a poem would be a good way to say, "Thank-you."

A Simple Thank-You, My Friend

Into the dim lit, bare walls of my world,
You entered, bringing light and life to me,
The vivid colors, painted with a swirl
Of wit and charm, of personality,
With tender care, you added comfort, warmth,
And images that line the now bright walls.
I look upon them fondly, bringing forth
A thankfulness that you walk in these halls
With me; our friendship has become a part
Of my world now; it has its special place,
Within my being, life, and in my heart,
Your name hangs right beside your smiling face.
Rememb'ring just how drab these walls had been,
I have to thank you for the light, my friend.

This poem is very touching to me. I have a friend that is moving away, and I guess reality has hit and now its getting to me more and more as the days get closer.

I really enjoyed reading your poems. Some of them are heart warming, but true. I was really touched by this poem.
Not given myself the credit I deserve, I have always taken the back seat in lfe. It took a very special friend to light my way. You don't find SPECIAL friends like this every day.
i loved it!
this nice poem!i like it!
What your doin in this poem. how your thanking your friend. i think thats great, b/c not alot of pple do that anymore. we now these days take friends for advantage. we need to show our friends that were thankful. not just buying them expensive things. tell them how you feel, because you never know one day you can lose them just like that. they could die on you anytime
makes me feel good happy thanks to you

i loved this poem it really resembled how my best friend saved me from the walls of depression and i am a better person because of her and i can not thank her enough for what she did. im not great at poetry but this poem really truly reflects what happened. Thank you also for putting into words so other people and her can understand what she did for me
