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.
