I know we have been best friends for a long time now, but the more moments we spend together, the more I value our friendship.
The older we grow, the more I realize how much I rely on you for support in every phase of my life.
Friends were made to catch each other when they fall and you have never failed me, you’ve always been there through my ups and downs.
Please continue to be my shoulder to cry on.
Your selfless care has always surrounded me, guided me and sheltered me. You’ve always kept me company in my times of immense loneliness.
You saved me from the cold solitude, you were like a tourniquet for all my open wounds that you didn’t cause. You knew how to hold me when tears were all I had.
Please keep understanding my mistakes.
I make some pretty big mistakes, and I always come to you right after each and every one with streaming tears and a broken heart.
You always seem to know what to say to make me feel better. You’ve been able to fix what the world breaks in me, simply by being my best friend.
Please continue to put up with my stubbornness.
Yes, sometimes the only voice I hear and feel is my own. Sometimes my stubbornness is for the adrenaline rush, and other times for gambling because I have nothing to lose.
The despair I have makes me careless and reckless.
Please, never stop interfering with my stubborn behavior as you’re the one person who can bring me back down to earth!
Please don’t get mad when I’m being ridiculous and unbearable.
I can be nuts. Sometimes I can see it in your eyes that you want to yell at me.
I feel it during the times when you want to suck that silliness out of me, but you know I only do it when I’m indifferent and insensitive.
This is what makes our friendship extraordinary. You accept me as I am and bear it all for me even when you know that it won’t be the last time.
Please just always be my best friend.
You are the peanut butter to my jelly, you’re the cream to my coffee, and you’re the milk to my oreo!
You’re my best friend and I truly don’t know what I would do without you. You’re my absolute support system and I’d fall apart without you.
You help me find parts of me I thought I’d lost to the wrong people. My whole existence wouldn’t be the same if you weren’t here.
Stay, till the clock runs out of time and till our ages are hard to count on our hands.
Thank you for being my best friend.
