I needed a friend today.
I was starving for your undivided attention.
I yearned to be comforted today.
I was thirsting for acceptance.
You shared your heart, unapologetically.
I saw your struggles as you pulled open the curtain that veiled your heart.
Your sweet spirit resonated with me.
Your empathy is a healing balm for my soul.
Your listening ear uplifted me.
Your understanding words washed over me.
They watered my arid heart.
They nourished my barren life.
I look on now, weak, wounded, but joyful and healing.
I take a step forward, determined yet shaky.
I am moving on, trusting that the best is yet to come.
Thank you, dearest friend, for helping me have faith in life again.
