You’ve been open through the years,
Showed your feelings and your fears.
You haven’t backed away from sharing
In truth, you’ve been quite daring.
I’ve never wondered where I stood,
You’ve told me as you felt you could.
And knowing how you’ve felt has been
A comfort to my heart, my friend.
I feel I know you in a deep way,
Deeper than I know how to say.
It warms my heart to know you’re there.
I trust that you will always care.
I feel you’re faithful and you’re true,
I know that I could lean on you.
I’m glad we clicked right from the start
And I can say, “I know that heart.”
