What I wanted to share with you is what has had me crying and missing her so much lately.
Friends forever, you and me.
True friends forever are what we shall be.
Talking and walking, just getting along,
Hoping and joking and singing our songs.
The time we spare, the dreams we share,
I just want you to know, I'll always be there.
The things I remember would warm your heart,
we grew up together and were seldom apart.
Seemingly as one, we tasted life and experienced new things,
but we both wondered what our futures might bring.
We started out together on life's new path,
but due to unfortunate choices, mine did not last.
You however, followed your heart and chased our dreams,
and eventually you found out what true love really means.
I must admit, your wedding announcement made me cry,
as I thought a small part of us was destined to die.
You've proven to me my fears were unfounded,
since you still share with me your life, ever so well rounded.
The birth of your sons made me feel so proud,
I was so delighted for you both that I shouted out loud.
Since you continue to share what best friends would share,
I feel as though I have been and always will be there.
Even though we are far apart,
I still feel the beat of just one heart.
You are now and always have been my best friend,
and this friendship, I know, will never end.
Tina, as ALWAYS, I love you with all of my heart.
