Have I told you lately.

Hey! You there. Friend.

You know who you are.

I might not see you that often, I don’t text that often, I don’t ring ever!

I’m pretty bloody useless if I’m being honest.

It’s not because I’m not thinking of you.

I am.

I think of you always it’s just life gets in the way, you know how it is. With work and the kid and just sitting I’m a pretty busy gal.

Doesn’t mean I’m not here for you.

I am.

I want you to know that if you need me, no matter how big, small, trivial or life changing the problem, I’ll be there.

I will be there, to listen, to be a shoulder to cry on, to laugh with, to cheer you up, to celebrate your successes.

I’ll be here.

I’ve known you years and my life has been better for having you in it.

You know everything about me because I have chosen to tell you and trust you with my deepest, darkest secrets and thoughts. I am honest with you, you are honest with me. You know my faults, you know what I like, you know what makes me smile, you know my insecurities, you know all the embarrassing stuff, you accept me as I am warts, past, present, future, everything in between and all.

For that I thank you.

When I see you, which might not be very often, I enjoy spending time with you, with our families, catching up, gossiping, drinking, dancing, having a fantastic time, laughing.

It’s because you are who you are to me. You always manage to make me feel better about myself, to make me feel a little happier, to cheer me up.

When you’re hurt, I’m hurt. When you’re sad, I’m sad.

I want to be able to take it all away, I want to be able to make it all better for you, I want to be able to make you smile. It might not always be possible, but never doubt I won’t try, I won’t be thinking of you, I won’t be praying that things will get better.

I will.

I have the best time when I’m around you.

It’s true, that saying, its not where you are or what you’re doing it’s who you’re with. I could have just completely made that up! Sounds about right though.

You there! Friend!

You know who you are.

Have I told you lately that I love you.

‘Cause I do!

  1. Brilliantly written hun

    I could use these exact same words for my friend today who is going through hell.

  2. Beautifully put. As someone who has relocated across the world and back again, this post really resonates with me. I have a number of friends who I love dearly and am completely useless about keeping in touch with (though it works both ways) – I think about them often though.
