This is written for a good friend of mine who I met in a message board on an ED site. We've gotten to be really close in the past year, and have struggled together through these extremely hard times. We've never met, but we intend to soon. I sent this to her today, and she loved it... I hope you all feel the same way.
To My Friend:
Two souls caught in the grasp of a disease,
Both fighting to stay alive.
Your struggle I can carry,
I will not burden you with mine.
Although we've never met,
I love you as though you were my sister.
You will never have to fight this alone,
I'll always be here for you.
I make all of your joys and sorrows my own,
I will lift you up when you can't go one.
Everyday I wait
Until the next email.
I cannot tell you that I continue to struggle,
I want you never to worry,
You carry too much already,
I love you too much to hurt you.
I am the stronger one,
I will gladly carry you when you have fallen,
If I could make your pain my own I would take it from you...
My friend, this is how much you mean to me.
I never thought that you would ever be the one to let me down. I guess that just goes to show how wrong I always am.
