My Special List 

 

I have a list of folks I know

all written in a book,

And every now and then

I go and take a look.

That is when I realize

these names they are a part,

not of the book they're written in,

but taken from the heart.

For each Name stands for someone

who has crossed my path sometime,

and in that meeting they have become

the reason and the rhyme.

Although it sounds fantastic

for me to make this claim,

I really am composed

of each remembered name.

Although you're not aware

of any special link,

just knowing you, has shaped my life

more than you could think.

So please don't think my greeting

as just a mere routine,

your name was not

forgotten in between.

For when I send a greeting

that is addressed to you,

it is because you're on the list

of folks I'm indebted to.

So whether I have known you.

for many days or few,

in some ways you have a part

in shaping things I do.

I am but a total

of many folks I've met,

you are a friend I would prefer

never to forget.
