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.
