i thought it was too good to be true
i thought you would give up
but you didnt
i thoguht you hated me
but you didnt
you were always there even when i was bad
you helped me discover what love is
you are my family
my mom and dad
even when i doubted you
you loved me
you never stopped visiting me
you didnt care if we had to visit in a small dirty room
just when i felt like ending my life
dont do it please for me and my wife
you said you loved me no matter what
you let me come home
and never was i alone

You don't know what you have until you've lost it. So treasure everything you do have and never let it go

i love how the poem seems to flow and the emotion you put into your words, very good job!
