Best Friends Forever


Published by Family Friend Poems October 2007 with permission of the Author.

I'll stand by your side
Help fight all your fights
And never leave you alone
And when you cry
I'll get a cup and let you fill it up
And dump it in the ocean
And we can sit and watch as your pain floats away
And when you are happy I'll capture it in a glass and when you are blue I'll pull it out and show you
And when you are old and dying I'll be by your side crying
And when you're gone
I'll close your eyes
And whisper to you
See you on the other side

This poem really touched me. It made me think of the day I met my best friend. I used to live in Alaska you see but this year I moved all the way to Massachusetts. I've never moved before so for me it was the hardest move of my life. All my friends behind, and going to a new school where I would know nobody. Horrible yeah first day wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Instead it wasn't that bad because it was the day I met my best friend. It was pretty easy to meet him we ended up being in the same class and sitting right next to each other. His name is Vinny and he backflips! He's tiny but he's also mighty and strong. He's my best friend because no matter what he always makes me laugh and smile. I know it's only been a couple of months for me but since I met him my life has changed a lot. I can't ever imagine never seeing him again because he's an amazing best friend and nothing could change that. Well that's my story I hope you all enjoy !

My best friend Melissa of age 34 is diagnosed with lung cancer and has spread to her liver. We have been in and out of the Cancer Center with her appointments and the last visit was a week ago and she was doing good, but there has been a turnfall and she is now in the Hospital. She will be going into a surgery tomorrow and the doctors say there's a 50\50 chance of her going through with it. She has 4 beautiful kids they are my nieces and nephews and I feel for them, they have also been through a lot. I pray for her and will always be there for her even when she's gone with the Lord, I will continue to help her in any way I can. 18 Years of friendship is all I have to keep in my heart when she leaves us.... I Love you Melissa!
