Once In Lifetime…

A true friend is someone you can be yourself around, and never have to fake it. This person knows everything about you and still loves you just the same!  They are someone you can laugh with, cry with, and treasure the moments with.  I call this a once in a lifetime friendship.

I wrote this poem in honour of my once in a lifetime friend.  You know who you are! 

Once in a lifetime someone touches your life
Attaching themselves to your heart without intending to
Believing in you with an unshakeable confidence
Offering you strength and hope when you have none
Encouraging you to reach deep into your soul to unveil a fresh perspective,
   allowing you to see yourself in new ways
Standing steadfastly by your side in times of suffering & uncertainty
Building you up and empowering you to be a positive influence
   to those you come in contact with
Challenging you to continually strive toward the goals set before you
When this someone comes into your life, hold onto them and be thankful
that you have been blessed with the gift of a once in a lifetime friend.
