I want to thank you for sticking by me
when everything was wrong.
When I doubted my existence,
you showed me where I belong.
When I hated myself to the point of going insane,
you showed me itís just the sickness set inside my brain.
When I pushed you away and told you not to care,
you pulled me close, thank you for being there.
When I crawled inside the bottle with nothing left to give,
you took away the pills and showed me reasons to live.
When I tried to drown my pain with one addiction after another,
When I told you to leave, I donít need you please donít bother.
When I took out all my anger and hate on everyone that was around.
When I begged you please donít save me, all I want to do is drown.
When I sunk so deep inside myself with thoughts darker than the night,
thank you for finding me, for turning on the light.
Iíve never been to open with anyone at all.
Thank you for being there, for answering the call.
My cries for forgiveness,
my holding on so tight,
thank you for never leaving me,
for never giving up the fight.
With the tenderest of words and softest of touch,
thank you for being there for loving me so much,
and if I never learn anything else in this life I live,
I know that I will never deserve the friendship that you give.
Out of all the lies I have told I hope you can believe this to be true,
I have never been stronger in all my life and I owe this to you.
You never looked at me with pity or doubted I could be
that person that you saw when you looked deep inside of me.
