You are sent my way, a gift from far away
Where unknown forces, amaze me ceaseless.
Many reasons explain why you feel like home.
This exquisite being, closest to my heart,
My best friend. You.
I trust you to know my dreams,
Deepest of secrets, core of my distress.
I have faith in you to be mindful.
To get me right every time I`m off-beam.
You don't turn away, nor take your eyes off,
You don't question, not even for a second
What I value in you the most
Is for witnessing me, no matter what.
It is you I think of in times of low,
Days of gloom, nights of lone
It is you I turn to in times of thin,
Days of ruin, in nights of storm
A lingering image of you,
I hide in my heart.
To give me might, to give me sight,
To shove me towards the light,
In menacing dark.
You give me hope when I see none.
You give me laughs when I drown in dread.
You give me courage when I hide from my shadow.
You give me myself when I am on the run.
A self, tender,
A self, brave,
A self, to love
You are my ears listening tireless.
You are my garden crowding in blooms.
You are my pen scribbling dazzling prose.
You are my breathing hole
I swim towards to surface.
When you decided to linger
With good reason: So you say!
You walked me when I lagged behind
With no qualms: You saved my day!
You carried me when I dragged my feet
About to quit, and forever you may.
I owe it to you, a dear thing I own,
Our friendship sworn to last a lifetime.
Warmth it brings swells within,
Keeping me sane
When world make no sense,
When words make no sense,
When I make no sense.
I swear to remember
Our stories, our laughs.
The time invested in us
Will soar in ten-fold
I swear to take thee as my friend,
Closest to my heart, dearest to me.
My forever friend,
That you are to me.
