To My True Friend

You are here
You are always here for me
No matter what my mood is
No matter how I look today

I am sad and you are here
I am happy and you are here
You never judged me
You never betrayed

I made mistakes. You were patient
You never threw a tantrum
You never left me
You were always open

You just waited for me to come
You accepted me in my beauty and my weirdness
You accepted me in my smartness and my goofiness
You accepted me in my best and my worst

Through days and nights.

How beautiful and sad our relationships are.

You made me weird in some ways
But I love these quirks in me
They always were there
But I’m safe having them

You saved me multiple times in my life.
I owe you so much.
Your protected me.
You are my foundation.
You gave me the base on which to start exploration.
I feel safe because of you.

I’m ready for more.
Thank you, my friend.
I value you.
It will always be like that.
