I'm glad you were honest, I needed advice;
Once would have done it, but you told me twice.
That's really okay, I needed the truth;
If we weren't such good friends, I'd call you uncouth.
You told me straight-up with no sugar coating;
And, when you were right, did not stoop to gloating.
Sometimes you're blunt, but that's what friends do;
You know that I'll listen, and I'm grateful for you.
No other person has quite the same way
Of setting me straight, so I wanted to say--
Thanks for "the chat." Please know you've been heard;
And that was both times, I won't need a third.
