A Friend For Life

This life ceases to amaze me. You think that you really know a person. A person that you have talked to a million times, seen an inumerable amount of times and have connected with on so many levels. You take all that, and you can almost safely assume you know what makes them tick, right? Wrong.

Its becoming clear to me that until we reach adulthood, the words we speak to each other as kids dont convey who we truely are. At the time we think they do, but they dont. Not until our personalities are mature to the point that we believe in our own way and consequence, can our words have the power to give us a platform to stand on and proclaim who we are.

It took me a while, but I think Im finally getting a good read. Through mature and deep conversation, I can see a truly magnificent person appearing out of what was a thick fog. I thought I knew you as well as anyone, but I was wrong. I was looking at you through the false pretenses of adolescence. But the more I talk to you these days, the more I come to see the light you posses within.

Your a special person to more people than you can imagine. You have the ability to draw people to yourself with the sincerest intention of good will. You have been my best friend since the day I was born, and no matter the distance or time between us, you can know that my life has been touched by the person you are. And for that i thank you. Remember one thing always:
Dont ever stop being who you are.
