For so long I held my heart so securely in place.
Away from the world, in this cold, dark, lonely space.
Then you came into my life, and I didn’t know what to do.
What my heart had so longingly missed, I now found in you.
Letting you in my life was something I wasn’t sure about.
But the more time we spent together I was left without a doubt.
Knowing that with each passing day, your love to me meant more.
It filled a place inside my heart that had known only emptiness before.
I didn’t see how painful it must have been for you to love me, unconditionally.
When I demanded so much of you, this perfect person you tried so hard to be.
Even though it wasn’t purposeful I know it hurt your heart to believe.
That just one mistake, and I wouldn’t hesitate to leave.
How could you have known nothing was ever farther from being true.
Your smile, the warmth of your heart, I could never bid adieu.
As you held my heart you touched a part of my soul, and there your fingerprints still rest.
Your whispers softly echo, with hopes of hearing them I quiet my very breath.
Although where we’re headed now is something yet unknown,
A part of me has left, and never again will I alone, my heart own.
And how fortunate I must be, that at this journey’s end,
It has been, still is, and always will be, you I call best friend.
Just always remember to be patient and pray,
“Tomorrow will be different” as you’d always say.
For you, there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do,
My heart’s not that big yet, but I’ll give you that too.
To be your friend is what I am honored to be,
To be your sister is what I’m meant to be.
So now you should know as we’ve reached an end,
To me you’ll always be more than a friend.
