You Were There

when tears fell from my eyes
you were there to brush them away
when I was lost in confusion
you were there to say that everything would be okay
when I stood before you falling apart
you were there to lend your heart
when I felt like no one could understand
you were there to take my hand
when no one else was left to care
you were there

dedicated to: my best friend

I recently went through a divorcé, and without knowing, a real good friend from Elementary school was also. We hooked up as friends again and I honestly don't know what I would do without him! He is my rock and I know he will always be there for me. I love you! R.D.M.

This poem has really touched my soul in such a way that it reminded me of my best friend whom I last saw her last year, she was the pillar of my strength, the laying box where I laid my secrets, the tissue to wipe my tears but more especially the precious friend I have ever had in life. If everything was according to me, I would build her a house in heaven so that people could see how special she is to me!

I and my bestfriend had a simple misunderstanding but it's really the start of a good fight.

Yes, very much, I lost a friend from a stupid mistake I made, it had not involved my friend, but she warned me. Thank you so much I was looking for the right thing to say!!
