Dear Best Friend

I write to you to tell
you that I’m always here.
Whether I’m not physically there,
or if I’m right by your side….

The silence
is too loud for me to pretend.
It hurts to know
that I cause the pain
and the distance.

But loud and clear,
I want to show you now.
That there’s a feeling of regret
and lots of sorrow.
But the happiness is too much
to just forget about it all.
Because I need a best friend
and that best friend can only be you.
The endless laughs.
The jokes of utter nonsense.
The tears of a good time.
It’s the perfect package.
Because that is simply us.
