You are my sunshine and so it is always light in my world, there is the sweet velvety night, there is even inky and perfect black... but your friendship is a light to me that somehow grows inside my soul and shines through my own eyes. That is what a best friend can do, one who loves you.

In the push and pull between the primitive drive and higher-order social mind, I resent and then love you, my friend. I am well schooled in what love is, what love is not. When the primitive drive takes the wheel it's hard to fight it, to stay what a friend should be. If I wait for the panic to subside, to feel the sadness that lives beneath my anger, to let the fear be acknowledged... then I'm in control. Soon the feelings of love come back and I want to hold you so close. In truth, whenever the wintry rain sets in I want to run to you. Only you. Every time. Maybe one day that'll actually happen, or perhaps you'll run to me. Either way, regardless of outward appearances, you're the only one my heart has let in.

Sometimes, when I am not feeling good, just the thought of your name lightens my mood. I just feel content that you are there to protect me, to save me, to guard me, from any harm that will befalls me. I know you will always be there for me, to lift me up when I fall. You are everything I know, the person who laughs before picking me up, the person who hugs me when I am crestfallen, the person who wipes hot gloomy tears which fall from my eyes. I will always remember those moments when we laugh together, get scoldings together, when we play pranks on our classmates. I love you and will love you forever, no matter how far across the continent you are, a part of your soul will always be etched in me, you will always be my BESTIE!
