Birthday Poem

This poem is about a friend I've spent so much time with ever since we were born. We went to so many places together, but that stopped when her parents had an argument with members in our church. Because of that, we won't be able to see each other anymore. When she left, I had a really hard time living without her, because she was the person I spent most of my time with. I miss her so much, and I know she feels the same way about me, so I dedicate this poem to her.

Happy Birthday, Far Away Friend

Dear friend, I want to wish you a splendid happy birthday.
We don't see each other anymore, but I hope everything is okay.
You're growing to become the intelligent woman I know you can be.
I'm so fortunate to have a friend like you who's gentle, loving, and sweet.

Today should be a day of pure happiness and love for you,
Enjoying and gathering with those who remain devoted and true.
I wish you the best in life, though we both know how hard it can be,
But I pray that God will open your doors to brighter opportunities.

You are the kind of person who always offers a helping hand.
We are miles away from each other, but the love we share will never end.
Never seeing you again will always be a difficult test,
But our everlasting friendship is what I will never forget.

I won't forget about all the things you've brought to my years:
Long-lasting laughter and contenting cheers.
I never knew that all of these blessings could all come true,
But my life has been better, and it's all because of you.

Wherever you are right now, I pray that you are happy and safe.
I don't know your status, but I hope things are going your way.
I know for a fact that God will strengthen you and help you to be stronger.
I pray, my friend, that no weapon formed against you will prosper.

Thank you so much for your kindness, loyalty, and forgiveness.
You've promised me many times that I'll never travel life without a witness.
So happy blessed birthday, my friend; thanks for being there for me.
I miss you deeply, but you're always in my memories.

I spent a lot of time with my 1st bf as well. Then when we were turned 18, he had to move SA! It's been 7 years, and we ended up breaking up! We've tried getting back several times but a long-distance relationship is actually harder than you read about, especially when you only get to see each other once in a year. Best wishes to everyone out there.
