A Grateful Thistle Poem Verses

A Scottish heart, a love so pure,
A bond that time could not obscure,
My dear friend, a precious gift,
In gratitude, my soul I lift.

I appreciate the moments shared,
The laughter, joy, and tender care,
Their presence, a balm in troubled times,
My dear friend, forever mine.

Though they're gone, their memory stays,
A guiding light, through darkest days,
My dear friend, I'll hold so close,
A grateful thistle, love's sweet prose.
