For My Best Friend, I Thank You For Giving Me A Home Alicia ThorneOctober 2019 I don’t know how to say this, so let me start by saying you were my safe haven. I could be myself around you. That’s why you are truly unique and special to me. When I had things to get off my chest, you were there for me. Never growing tired of lending me your ear. And you even tried to understand me. That couldn’t have been easy. Even When You Were Not By My Side, I Felt Your Presence. Your calls and texts kept me going. They gave me more strength than you can imagine. I thank you for loving me. Without conditions. Without justifications. Even when I went against your solid advice, you stood by me. You stood by me at my worst, helped me to stay afloat when I was drowning in my woes. You did not let me give up on my dreams or ambitions. Even when I tried to forget about them, you made me realize that there was still hope. Because Of You, I Have Learned To Always Shoot For The Stars. When I was fighting various demons, you were there by my side. You made sure I conquered them, and that they did not hurt me. The thorns and briers in my path you cleared, so I could make it to the finish line. There Aren’t Enough Words To Thank You For What You Did For Me. Blessed be the ground you walk upon! I was practically losing it. I was overwhelmed, crazy and making all the wrong decisions. I honestly didn’t deserve you or your kindness. I was an embarrassment to you, but you saw past that. You saw something in me I didn’t even see in myself. We had great times. I still remember them today. The hilarious experiences we shared and the amazing memories are all there. I Was As Rich And Fulfilled As I Could Be With You Around. Yet you never needed an apology from me when I did you wrong. You never made me feel sorry. You were completely selfless. You gave up a lot just to accommodate me and my escalating needs. At my worst, you were the best friend anyone could hope for. Whether I was going through good or bad, you were there. There is nothing I faced you couldn’t handle. I even tried to push you away. Because, let’s face it, you were more than I could ever ask for. Thank you for not walking away. Thank You For Never Giving Up On Me. You were there to see me grow, I could never have had a greater privilege than to know you and be your friend. I say with the utmost sincerity. The person I am today has a lot to do with the friendship you showed towards me. We may be apart right now. You may never need me as much as I needed you. But be assured of one thing, I am eternally grateful for all you did to me. And you will always be in my heart.
