Love letter for a friend

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born." (Anais Nin)

Friendships are the most fragile relationships in the whole world. A friend is not obligated to be a friend to someone; it’s his or her own choice to be someone’s friend and to stand by his or her side no matter what happens.

Friendships are fragile, I’ve experienced this many times. 

I’ve also experienced this very recently; I thought I've lost one of my best friends. I thought I’ve lost a person who was by my side each and every day for the last eight years. 

She was by my side in good times and bad, in sickness and in health.
When six years ago a doctor told me I have a chronic disease she was by my side.
When I broke up with three of my ex-boyfriends she was by my side.
When I met Mr Starlight she was one of the first people I’ve told that I’m madly in love.
When I was accepted to the university she was by my side and she was sincerely happy for me.

I’m grateful and happy that I have such a good and loyal friend. I’m grateful and happy that I have more than one good friend for whom I am sure will be by my side no matter what happens. 

We had a fight and I was afraid I’ve lost her. But our friendship is stronger than that. We mean too much to each other to let such an important and loving relationship fail.

She is by my side in good times and bad, in sickness and in health; I know this for sure.

I hope that You also know that I’m here for you, no matter what.
I promise to be true to You in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love You and honour You all the days of my life.


  1. Its nice to have friends you can count on for life, lovely post! :)

  2. True friends always find a way and stand the test of time. Glad it worked out.

  3. Very lovely post about friendship.

  4. I had a true friend like this a few years ago. But once Rich was diagnosed with Hepatitis C, she just stopped. Stopped calling, stopped return my calls, stopped being a friend PERIOD. I was really hurt by that. That's when I needed my friend the most. Boy did I peg her wrong. Glad you have a great friend like you do. It's so important.

  5. @Doria - It is, isn't it? :) Thanks for your comment.

    @Barbara - That's true, thank you for your lovely comment.

    @Dicky - Thank you, I'm glad you liked it.

    @Barb - I'm so sorry to hear that your friend left, I guess she wasn't such a good friend as you thought she was. Thank you for sharing your story.
