For my friend

For you my friend, who listened to my pain.


You listened while I lamented, you heard me out when I vented.

You told me things I didn’t want to hear, just because you wanted it all to be clear.


All the while you had your own dealings, someone you cared for hurt your feelings.

I know you struggle with many things, I know at night your heart stings.

I am impressed at your ability to conjure a smile, I’m impressed by your strength all the while.

You are a rarity, you shouldn’t be ashamed. Don’t let your heart ever be tamed.

Hold your child close to your heart, that’s a relationship that will never part.

Whenever you need to talk, you know I’ll be here. In your future, there’s no room for fear.
