Tribute to a dear friend

I saw you and was so excited…it’s been so long!

Catching up is what we do best and as we did I could sense something was amiss but I really couldn’t place my finger on it.

I guess you are always so chirpy and I don’t have a picture of you in my head ever being sad. But as we talked and we got to share more I actually saw that something TRULY was amiss! Why do I always ignore my instincts?

It really hurts to see you hurting and though I feel a little helpless…I’m always here for you.

You know this is for you.

This is a quote from one of my favorite movies: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. It really captures what I’m trying to say and I hope you will read it someday and that it will mean something to you:

Some things never would be
But we know now that no matter how far we traveled on our own separate paths…
Somehow we would always find our way back to each other.
And with that, we could get through anything.
To us. Who we were, and who we are. And who we’ll be.
To the pants.
And the sisterhood.
And to this moment, and the rest of our lives.
Together and apart.

I love you girl 🙂

Dear Friend, what’s on your mind
You don’t laugh the way you used to
But I’ve noticed how you cry

Dear friend, I feel so helpless
I see you sit in silence
As you face new pain each day
I feel there’s nothing I can do

I know you don’t feel pretty
Even though you are
But it wasn’t your beauty
That found room in my heart
Dear friend, you are so precious
Dear Friend

Dear friend, I’m here for you
I know that you don’t talk too much
But we can share this day anew

Dear Friend, please don’t feel like you’re alone
There is someone who is praying
Praying for your peace of mind
Hoping joy is what you’ll find

I know you don’t feel weak
Even though you are
But it wasn’t your strength
That found room in my heart
Dear friend, you are so precious
Dear Friend
