|We've been friends for all our lives,|
or all of six years,
but it might as well be our whole lives.
From day one, our friendship was meant to be.
|In each other, we found the another who could relate.|
To being "different."
|And just crazy enough to go out in public like this,|
and repeat this two years in a row.
No wonder we made stellar roommates.
|And then, she went and got herself hitched.|
And I cried.
But not until after we laughed and celebrated
and I basked in her glow.
|Her and her new husband even reserved a special space for me|
in their downtown apartment, so I wouldn't get too lonely.
|She is sunshine,|
a cup brimming joy...
|my partner in crime,|
who didn't think we were too old to learn to skateboard
near the end of our twenties.
|There is no water too icy she won't venture into with me,|
no puddle too muddy to jump in.
|While we waited for her baby to come,|
we kept the comraderie between us.
|She's so wonderful,|
even scarecrows are cheered up in her presence.
Her hugs are warmth and medicine.
|She radiates love.|
One of the most beautiful moms I know.
|In her love for me,|
she's modeling for her son from an early age
an appreciation for goats.
|I'm thankful for my bosom friend,|
who walks the road less traveled,
who walks beside me on this journey.
