Though I am rarely serious,
(and when I am,
it's only for short periods of time)
I would like to take this time,
brief though it may be,
to let you know just how precious 
you are to me.

I may not always show it,
but I care about you very much
and if not for your presence
in my life and your friendship,
which I value so very much,
I would not be the happy person
I am today.
