Dear Best Friend of Mine

I'm miles away and I think of you still.
You're deep in my heart.
You'll stay there, you will.

I'll never forget the times that we had.
The heartfelt discussions.
The good and the bad.

I'll never forget the confusion I felt,
The day I told you our friendship may melt.
I'm moving away I told you that day.

Being with you is a part of the past.
These words that I speak may be our last.

You reached out your hand and opened your heart
And whispered in my ear, "This is only the start."
A friendship like ours, no matter who goes away
can only get better.
Not crumble..
Not stray..

If two people were better for each other than us
God kept them for himself.
And that is a must.

For you are my best friend.
And I am yours, too.
We're stuck to each other.
Just me and just you.
