"For Ashley" :)

If I could be so honest
For just a minute or two
I have something special
I’d like to share with you

I want to let you know
Right from my very heart
How much I am thankful
For the wonderful friend you are

A good friend is rare,
And the most cherished gem of all
Like a twinkle in the night
When the wish you make comes true

Beautiful on the inside as well as the out 
You’re understanding of life
It's like you been through it all 
No judgments have ever been past for you’re not one to judge.

There is nothing like a good friend
To tell your troubles to.
Someone to open up with,
Someone to talk you through,

I'm glad that God blessed me,
With a good friend such as you.
A person to be there,
A person to get me through.

You’re always there when I need
A little cheering up
Or maybe just a smile
Or a friendly hug

A little kind advice,
Some encouragement too
A supportive gesture
Because that’s what friends do

Everyone needs that friend who will constantly challenge them. 
The friend who sees you slowing, sees you tiring, 
And pushes you to keep going.

Thank you for your positive outlook on life, 
Your multi-perspective advice
Your non-judgmental attitude. 

Thank you for filling my life 
With good thoughts, 
With a solid friendship. 

Thank you for showing how to be myself
To smile when I’m afraid, to stand up for what I believe in, 
To question anything that made me curious.

So, I just wanted to say
In the most sincere way
Thank you for being my friend
Today and every day.

Clearly, there's someone somewhere who has qualities that
deserve recognition "from the heart".
