Thanks for the time when you gave me hope
when I thought my road had reached the end.
Thanks for the second chance* you gave me
when I acted foolishly and thought I'd lost a friend
Thanks for the moments when we fought the odds
and together we survived the hardship and the pain
Thanks for the memories, the lessons learned
and the richness of experience that we gained
Thanks for the gift of friendship, so priceless
So long, farewell, till we meet again.
