MORE THAN JUST A MATE- #BFF

As a young girl I wanted to be everybody’s friend. Now I’m 37 I’ve accepted that life doesn’t work like that. There are some people you just don’t connect with, there are those you may not like no matter how hard you try and there are some who won’t like you. At some point you may find out they have been saying things about you behind your back. The tears I’ve cried over ‘friends’ like that! If I could say anything to my younger self it would have been “Trust your instinct. Don’t waste time worrying about the ones who’ve let you down. Focus on the amazing friends you have been blessed with” And I have certainly been blessed with quite a few of these gorgeous people. One of them is celebrating her birthday today in England. I wrote these words for her:

I have heard so many words when talking of true friends

Caring, kind, full of love and loyal ’til the end

And you to me are all of those, each and every one

Yet there’s so much that they do miss, like a sky without a sun

The light and sparkle you shine on me, by knowing that you’re there

The love you show so endlessly is never hard to bear

You always want the best for me, so proud when I do well

Occasionally we disagree, but never do we dwell

If I am sad, angry or mad you listen and won’t  judge

But you tell me if you think I’m wrong – a persuasive gentle nudge

If I am happy, you cry for me – tears filled with ecstasy

Because you’ve been with me through it all, no need for empathy

So this is my way of saying to you, you’re more than just a friend

You’re the icing on my cupcake, mate and I’ll love you til the end!
