We did everything together. We were inseparable and everyone knew that where one went, the other was always there too. If more than an hour went by without us talking, it was simply because we were asleep.
I told you about every single detail of my life. You were the one person that I could trust about everything. I always felt safe around you because I could be completely myself. I did not have to hide anything about myself or pretend to be someone I wasn’t.
You knew me better than I knew myself. You always offered the best advice for every situation. You knew how to calm me down when I was freaking out. You were never afraid of telling me to quit acting like an idiot.
You told me that I was your best friend and that nothing would ever come between us. We thought that nothing could ever change and that we would be best friends forever. I truly thought we would be together through thick and thin.
But times change and people do too. Soon we didn’t do everything together and entire days would go by where we did not talk at all. So many things happened in my life that you didn’t know about, and it wasn’t because I didn’t want to tell you, it was because you weren’t always right there like you used to be. I had to go to others for advice, but it was never the same as yours. They didn’t understand me as well as you did and while I appreciated their words of advice or encouragement, it wasn’t the same.
I lost my best friend. I miss the days we spent together and that constant presence you always had in my life. We took different paths in life and I can’t help but regret everything that got us to the point where we took two diverging roads. While our promise to be best friends forever may have been broken by both of us, I’ll make you another promise in its place. I’ll always be there for you, if you ever need me. Our connection can never be severed, even if we don’t talk every day anymore and even if we are no longer best friends. You will always be a special part of my life.
Poetry poetry poetry! This is where submissions get a bit more creative than most, and it's a wonder how many HOLers (particularly the eagles) are filled with fabulous artsyness.
