1) If these "tough times" are not work related, you're already engaging in inappropriate/unprofessional behavior. Keep your personal life out of the workplace.
2) If someone you work with does you a favor, you can thank them personally by simply saying "thank you" or you can write them a hand-written thank-you card if you wish. You do not write them poetry, ballads, music and you certainly DO NOT perform any of these things in the workplace.
