When I speak,

you hear my voice.

As I stumble,

you don't let go of my hand.

If I’m lost,

you are my road map.

You’re like a sister and a mother,

rolled into one loving person.

I owe you so much for your friendship.

Claire, I wrote this poem to tell you how much I appreciate you and your friendship. We have been friends for years now, and you have always been here for me. Thank you for your friendship, Claire.
