It began with a request,
Not like when I asked you,
As an adult, who had to fall to grow again,
You asked me in a mature phase,
I was flattered, to give back to you,
For your special day, and your special time,

A friendship in its 20th year,
You are making a change, and a new beginning,
And you offered me a role,
A part…to aid you, in a small form,
For what you’ve done for me,
Humbled and honored by you,

So for you and her on this special day,
My respects and aid I pay,
Respectfully your love united on your display,
Date, and I am fortunate to say,

A few words in your honor…
