How Can I Say Thank You?

Post by gemgirl » Wed Aug 11, 2010 8:51 pm

People come into our lives, sometimes we know right away that person was meant to be.
If for just a season or many years.
Maybe they were sent to teach us a lesson, or help us through a need?
At times when they come it could be because something painful is going through in our life.

It seems they give us strength to get through, they touch and empower our heart.
My friend how you have helped me through pain and tears.
Your presence has affected my life.
You have encouraged me to succeed, you shared my pain and weakness
you help lift me back on my feet.

What we experience from knowing them makes us a part of who we are.
If a friend comes with love, open your heart, for our friends may quickly
pass by and that experience may never come again!
We may not get a second change to have that person as a friend.
Remember your friend may have been where you are now?

My friend how can I say Thank you?
For words are not enough for what you have done

Very nicely written, Pam, and I like the way you express yourself !! I think this is called 'free verse'...where it doesn't have to rhyme, yet still presents itself as a poem. I like 'free verse' very much, and this one is full of a lot of truth. Thank you, Pam, for sharing your talent with us here at Hugs !! Welcome, once again !!

Love, Linda :D :) :lol: :wink:

Linda & Eva, Thank you both so much for the very nice comments you left for me.
I feel this way about a couple of my friends who have helped me so much since I went through a divorce not long ago.
Friends are what keeps us going along with our faith.
Seems I am so busy trying to work and keep up, It is late before I can seem to get on the site.
Then I end up reading so many good poems and trying to get to know how this works?
Took me a couple times of reviewing before I got it right and seen you could get notified when someone says something nice about what you wrote.

Thank you again for you kindness!

Thank you again for you kindness!

When you registered, there was an option for being notified. You can go up to the very right top of this page to "Users Control Panel" and make modifications to your account. Try that and see if it works. You do get notified, just have to check the right box !!

You're welcome for the comment, girl. Give the options another look...

Love, Linda

Thank you so much Linda!
I did find the box to get notified, just happened to see it at the bottom. It is working so far so good.
You are so sweet to be so helpful!
Guess it just takes reading and leaning sure I will make a few mistakes.

Don't know where you came up with such a cute name as Pokey's Heart, but love it!
Thank you for sending me a message and the welcome to the site. That is was very special to me, as I am sure to other new people.
Once again thank you for the warm welcome!

Hi Pam, I am pretty new to this site, myself. I have only posted 2 poems so far, but I am working on a third one to post. Yes, the couple of people that I have sort of met, here so far seem very nice. I really like your poem about friendship. Friends are very important to all of us.
