They said I should get rid of you,
that I should close that chapter of my life yet I am unable to.
I have often wondered why you stayed around,
why I couldn’t just erase you from my memory then I remember;
“you are an angel sent from heaven just for me.”
See I do not have the strength to remind myself to smile,
the strength to look life straight in the eye and banish its evil flares.
I asked Him for a friend;
someone to have my back,
a shoulder to cry on,
a little voice of reason,
little did I know that my wish had been granted.
See you may not be perfect,
you may think you are a complete failure,
but in my eyes you are one more reason to smile,
a reason to stay afloat,
a reason to keep pushing.
I do not know what the future holds for you,
what I do know for sure is that surely your good deeds and heart will be repaid.
So allow me to say this;
for all the moments you have picked up your phone,
the silent hugs you have given me,
putting up with my broken soul,
I am forever grateful,
