I promise …

As you sit in silence,
Wondering why
I’ll be your shoulder to cry on
Until your tears run dry.

When you’ve been hurt,
And can’t believe what they’ve done
If you need someone to talk to
I’ll be the one.

If a close friend hurts you,
And you don’t understand
Remember I’m here,
I’ll lend a helping hand.

Burdens are lighter when carried by two,
And I just want you to know
I’m here for you.

The day I met you
I found a friend.
And a friendship that
I pray will never end.

Your smile so sweet
And so bright
Kept me going
When day was as dark as night.

You never ever judged me,
You understood my sorrow.
Then you told me it needn’t be that way
And gave me the hope of a better tomorrow.

You were always there for me,
I knew I could count on you.
You gave me advice and encouragement
Whenever I didn’t know what to do.

You helped me learn to love myself
You made life seem so good.
You said I can do anything I put my mind to
And suddenly I knew I could.

There were times when we didn’t see eye to eye
And there were days when both of us cried.
But even so we made it through:
Our friendship hasn’t yet died.

Circumstances have pulled us apart,
We are separated by many miles.
Truly, the only thing that keeps me going
Is my treasured memory of your smile.

This friendship we share
Is so precious to me,
I hope it grows and flourishes
And lasts unto infinity.

You are so extra-special to me
And so this to you I really must tell:
You are my one true friend,
My Guardian Angel.

Our friendship is one-in-a-million
So let’s hold on to it and each other.
We cannot let this chance of pure bliss fly away
For there will never be another.

I need you.

Stay with me.

He is beautiful, so very beautiful
Just like a winter’s shining landscape,
As delicate as the petals of a daisy,
And as freely as the eagle soaring against the blue

His eyes are as mysterious as the calm sea
Everything about him is so very precious,
More precious than all the gems in the world
His soul is the essence of the sky and earth,
His feelings are a volcano that is yet to explode
His smile is the smile of lost innocence.

Pain vibrates deep inside of his gentle heart.
A lock shuts in the disturbed thoughts of his mind,
A mind with as many roads as the world has.
I look at him and I see a pure truth,
Like looking at a clear night sky,
Millions of stars twinkle within him.

He is beauty as I defined it,
He is perfect, his imperfections make him so.
He is my best friend, and I love him,
I love him although, not because.

And I would give up all the things which I think are pretty
If only I can hold his beauty within me,
For he is everything in this world,
And I have found a world in him.

Me and You

When I first talked to you
I felt like I had known you forever,
telling you my problems
and what I didn’t want ever.

You listened to me
I bet you thought I’d never end,
who would have thought
we would be the best of friends.

Over a period of time,
I got to know the real you.
A guy so charming and gentle,
with a heart so true.

You’ve survived your life
with me by your side.
I told you I’d never leave
because of the feelings I have inside.

I know you
like no one I have ever known.

I love the way we are together,
you can always make me smile.
Will it ever really be forever?

Always remember
what I have said.
Meeting you has changed my life
and I really love you so,
the feelings I feel for you
I am never letting go.
Remember me always
and I will too.

I will always think of
me and you.
