Do you know the name
Of that wonderful person
The one that shared your life
Thru happiness and strife?

Always there, always
Always there to count on
Always there to turn to
In this stressful life.

No need to know the name
It will change for me or you
This person is the one
That is there whenever
You need them to be too.

I thank this person
With all my heart
As you should too
For without them in our lives
Whatever would we do?
