There comes a time, when like the sun,
a friend brings to your life rays of fun.
With a pat on the back, he encouraged you to be,
all the great things that set your soul free.
With the heat of a fire now in your heart,
you know that this friend gave you your start.
The precious beginnings of faith in your talents,
a faith that brings your thoughts into balance.
As he fills your head with words of praise,
you long to repay him, but there's not enough ways.
So you find a few words and fill them with love,
and send them to him on the wings of a dove.
