I'd prefer to thank you this year.

Thank you so much for last year.

I want to thank you for the tears,

the subtle insults,

and the ignoring,

I probably took it too much to heart 


Thank you so much for this year.

I want to thank you for listening,

giving me a hard time,

breaking me down,

and building me up,

If I had thanked you earlier 

I would probably never be 

able to thank you again.
