Bitter Sweet Symphony



She is the sweetest, most generous loyal friend.

The type of friend who never forgets your birthday,

even when you forget hers.

A friend who senses when you’re unhappy,

and offers to buy you coffee, and chat.

A friend who holds a lot back about herself,

because she is too concerned with you and your needs.

Then one day you become the friend to her,

that she has always been to you.

Your heart breaks to learn about her life.

You imagined that such an amazing person lived a charmed life,

not a messed-up life with a dysfunctional family and an overbearing mother.

So you reach out to her, like she has done for you so many times before.

You listen,

and cry,

and hug,

and laugh,

You silently promise never to let this friend go.
