You were my strength


It was not so long ago, we were sitting in your kitchen chatting about everything, our children, work, the future. Sometimes I felt that I burdened you with my problems, but you never said a word. Coffee was always ready and you always made sure that we would not be disturbed. I was never close to my family, and you gave me the chance to be a part of yours. Your advice was always well thought about, and I always left you feeling that I could solve any problem.

I remember when they phoned, and told me you had passed away. I could not believe it. You never complained of having pains, you never said you didn't feel well. It was sudden. After the funeral, I started to feel guilty. My problems always seemed to be the topic of conversation, never yours. I couldn't even remember having asked you if you wanted to talk about something, or if you had a problem.

I miss you. I visit your grave whenever I can, and I sit and talk to you waiting for you to answer. You were my strength, and since you have gone I feel that I have lost it. My prayers are with your family, and you know that I wll always be there for them. They miss you so much. We all do and you are always in our minds. I hope that you are somewhere looking at us and taking care of us.

Your friend

You were the best friend anyone could have


Saying sorry to you was never easy, but this time I mean it. You were my best friend, like a sister, and I could never hurt you. There were even times when I told myself that if someone tried to hurt you, I would kill them. I never realised that I would be the one who would hurt you the most, though.

You and Jason had been seeing eachother for months. We all went out together, and even though I was single, both of you always took me with you. You will never know how much that meant to me. The night you were ill, Jason and I had gone to get something to eat, and a movie to watch, and well, as we were talking, something happened. I can't explain it. We kissed, and I knew that it was more than just a kiss. Jason did, too. That was all though. Just a kiss.

Being near the two of you after that was never easy, and so I started to think of excuses not to go out, not to be around you, until we just stopped being friends. When college started I left, and I never even said goodbye. I know I hurt you, but to be around you both was hard. I couldn't even forgive myself for that kiss, and I know that Jason cared for you. It was easier this way. Two years have passed, and I haven't even been back home. I keep myself busy here. I don't even know if you and Jason are still together.

I'm sorry for not being there for you, I just couldn't live with the thought of what may have happened. I'm sure it was the right thing to do, but I still think about you, and you were the best friend anyone could have, but I wasn't.

Soul mate

This is a small thank you, to you. I don't remember ever telling you how much your friendship meant to me, and now that you are no longer a part of my life, you should know that the moments are not so difficult, because your words and actions have remained in my mind. You were there for the good and bad times. You were there when the walls of my life seemed to be crumbling around me. You made me believe in me, whom I had lost somewhere along the road. I know that being my friend was never easy. I know that losing you was something I had to do, for both our sakes. The only thing I regret, is never saying thank you for being there

Forever Yours

My darlings,

Although you are both so young, I felt the need to write this letter to you. You are both the light of my life, and the reason I wake up every morning feeling as if I can do anything, because I have to, for you. I never imagined I could have two such beautiful children, who are so different and yet so alike. As you grow older, and I watch you both, I pray that your lives will be so much easier than mine.
I often wonder if I will be with you for every great moment, just to be on your side, in your corners.
Both your father and I love you in ways that you will only understand when you have children of your own. I know we moan, and shout and sometimes forget that the roots of our problems have nothing to do with you, and I always try to stop and think before I say what I need to say, but sometimes the pressure of surviving is so much bigger than the things I should be thankful for, so you often see the burdened side of me, rather than the more loving side.
I just need you to know that I am there for you, whatever happens, wherever you are. You are the greatest gift this life has given me, and for that I am thankful

Forever Yours
