I’m grateful for the friends I have
and those I have no longer.
For lessons learned and bridges burned
and things that made me stronger.
Some friends will stand right by your side
and petty things will perish
And in those friends we can confide
and keep all that we cherish.
I’m grateful for the times we’ve shared
and moments to remember.
The laughter, tears and memories
glow gently like an ember.
Bridges can be built again.
Hard times can help us grow.
We’ll take the lessons we have learned
and better days we’ll know.
