Best friends never mean the same thing until you have had the experience of a long term one.
Many people say that they have a best friend forever and always but cannot show evidence for its continuity.
Then there are those blessed few who have the honor of having the true bond that friendship brings.
We are the ones who have known each other to be the other part of us since the day we met.
We are the people who can say that we know each other from fighting over the same concept on the playground.
Or not knowing the same thing and achieving it only with the other’s help.
Those of us who have found this great gift do not flaunt it,
Nor do we describe our differences as a regretful occurrence,
Our soul rests inside the other because we choose to put it there,
No one can force it,
Or bend it,
Nor badger it into neglecting its place,
Not even tempt it to shatter.
It is stronger than the bond of glue on a broken map,
It is heftier than the distance between the worlds of beliefs it houses,
It is made of more compassion than that of the world combined,
It is based on the founding of love for another and the character it helps to maintain,
It has made us bonded by the strongest power in the universe as it forever stands,
We are sisters and brothers of the same upbringing,
Love and be loved by another’s heart and mind.
Letting nothing in the way of this responsibility is our sole task and challengeable interest.
Many say they have known this,
Others comment that it is nothing more than a trifle to be possessed,
I say that both of these statements are wrong,
What has or will be said about this relationship that constitutes it as an informal trait,
Should be reprimanded and thanked for the challenge of faith.
Long will our friendship flourish and grow no matter the distance between us.
