"Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light." - Helen Keller

Dear Friend,

Today, I was alone. Broken. Never would I have thought at my darkest moment, eyes filled with tears, heart torn apart and stomped upon, that those few words you said could make such a tremendous difference.

For the past few years that I’ve known you, albeit quite a short amount of time, we’ve had so many wonderful moments together. When I’m with you, I can be myself, without even thinking about if you were judging me for being silly, disgusting, loud, straightforward or petty. We may have had our differences and our share fair of arguments but all of these has made our friendship so strong, it’s almost unbreakable. Few years ago during a camp, a pastor gave our group an exercise to do. We were given a glass plate and he made us drop the plate and shatter it. Then he gave us a stick of super glue and asked us to put the pieces back together. It wasn’t an easy task because the plate was shattered to so many little pieces. As soon as we managed to finally fix it back together, he then asked us to drop the plate and break it again. This time however, to our surprise, the plate didn’t break. And what he said next is what I want to tell you now. “Friendship is as fragile as glass and can be easily broken, but if you painstakingly take the time to put it back together, it will only become stronger. Don’t you think what he said was true? =)

Today, I was alone. Broken. But then I realized, I had you. So thank you for sharing your time, your friendship, your life and your love with me. You will always be special to me. Many hugs. You know who you are.
