Dear friend, here are my feelings and thoughts for you to read.

Dear Friend

by yabookprincess

Dear friend,

I've known you all my life and you've never let me down. Your presence soothes me, your energy inspires me and your love holds me above surface to keep me from drowning.

Dear friend,

Together we did it all. We stayed up all night to exchange secrets, took spontaneous road trips, laughed so hard our stomachs hurt and cried until we couldn't anymore. Thank you for being there.

Dear friend,

Remember when your Mom forgot to pack lunch for you because she had that interview? You were embarrassed to ask me to share mine but I did it without hesitation because I love you.

Dear friend,

Every moment we spend together is a moment I truly get to live my life. You make everything seem so fascinating, even the things that would usually never catch my attention.

Dear friend,

I saw you today. You were sitting across from me, on the train, laughing like crazy as I told you one of my jokes. My whole family tells me they're stupid, but you don't seem to think so.

Dear friend,

I picked you a flower from my garden for Women's Day in hopes it would make you smile. You deserve to feel important. You are important.

Dear friend,

You seemed sad today but won't tell me why. Is something wrong? Did I do anything to hurt you?

Dear friend,

You've been avoiding me for a while now. And whenever we talk, you seem distant. Why do I feel like we're worlds apart?

Dear friend,

If you're going through a hard time, don't shut me out. I want to be there for you, I want to help you. It hurts more to be pushed away without an explanation.

Dear friend,

I met your Mom today. She didn't want to say anything, but she told me I should talk to you. Why won't you return my calls, my texts and emails when I'm trying so hard to reach out to you?

Dear friend,

My heart is broken and I feel an emptiness inside that I won't be able to fill if I lose you.

Dear friend,

I know it's hard to be brave and strong when you have a disease that does everything to destroy you. Your body is betraying you. But I'll be here until the end. I promise.

Dear friend,

You were quiet today. Your eyes had no usual spark in them. I miss that spark. It breaks my heart to see you wither away from this world.

Dear friend,

I shouldn't have yelled at you today. I know you're not entirely yourself. I know you're going through a lot. But I just can't hear you talk that way.

Dear friend,

Your good days are rare, I know. You are depressed most of the time and that time is almost over. Your skin is pale, you lost a lot of weight and you seem tired. But I still want to see you smile

Dear friend,

You sleep for days. Whenever I come by to your house, your Mom tells me you're not awake yet and that she'll call me when you are. Those calls are rare.

Dear friend,

You seem worse and I fear for you. I fear that you'll pass away without me by your side, all alone. I love you.

Dear friend,

The pain you're experiencing is immense, I know. So is my pain when I see you like that. You say death would be a relief. I'm sorry you ever had to find out what makes a person feel that way.

Dear friend,

The hospital walls are bleak and revolting. It smells like death and disinfectant. It feels like desperation, sorrow, pain and fear. Or maybe, that's just me.

Dear friend,

It's time to say goodbye, the doctors say. But I just can't bring myself to do so. Because saying goodbye means you're gone.

Dear friend,

I can't stop crying. I miss you.

Dear friend,

Your funeral was beautiful except I could hardly finish my speech. I wish you knew what you meant to all those people.

Dear friend,

Some days are better, some are worse. There's a black hole inside me and I feel like it's swallowing me up. Everything reminds me of you.

Dear friend,

I wish you were here.

Dear friend,

A year passed and I still think of you every day. You will never be forgotten or replaced. I brought you flowers and talked to you. But I don't know if you heard me.

Dear friend,

Thank you for being in my life. I miss you. I love you.

This was sensitive and tender. The grief is palpable due to your words and the "Dear Friend" stanzas. The thought and planning along with your skilled writing made this poem unforgettable. Great poem!!!!!
