Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about friends. She has just reconnected with a good friend after a long silence. Friends are forever. Cheers!
You stood by me.
Always there. Always listening.
You never knew my inner turmoil.
Yet you sensed a need.
A friendship need.
You reached out.
I didn’t respond. I was too wrapped up with my inner demons.
My inner dreams.
You still don’t know the depth of my pain.
But now I have let you glimpse the surface.
I finally open up. You see a glimmer.
A glimmer of my pain.
I trust. I love.
I thank you for the honor.
The honor of friendship.
