you loved me when i deserved it the least. you cared for me
through my sickness, you gave me your sympathy even after i
i hurt you emotionally. you held my hand through fear of the
unknown. you stood by my side while i faced time, you came
to visit after i was sentenced. you still showed me compassion
despite my struggles with drugs and alcohol. you sent me
encouraging letters trying to uplift my spirits. you knew the
true me, never giving up despite the pain i brought to bear
upon you. you forgave me and loved me when i deserved it the least.
you saw the innate goodness in me, you believed in me when
no one else would. you didnt give up, even when i caused you
spiritual distress, discord. i know the empathy you shared with me.
i cant change the past, nor do i choose to forget it. instead iam
learning from it, to change the person i was on the inside. to
examine my motives and thoughts which led to my debauchery.
i know you tried your best, im forever grateful. its time for me
to stand, to rise to the challenges in my life. to grow as a person,
to make amends and become deserving of trust again. you
where Gods medium, to do for me what i couldn't do for myself.
thank you my friend for loving me when i deserved it the least.
