To The Friend Who Is Always There To Catch Me When I Fall


One of the greatest blessings in life is to have that person who can touch your heart. The person you can freely talk to and share your secrets with. The person you can have fun with, laugh with, and even cry with.

Well, I can proudly say that I’ve been blessed because I have you in my life – my true friend.

You’re the person who stands out from all the people I love. The person without whom I can’t imagine my life. You’re the most valuable gift I’ve ever received and for which I’ll always be grateful.

You’re the person who’s stuck with me through thick and thin. The person who lifts me up and encourages me to get up and move on when I’m at my lowest. The person whose hug eases my pain. The person whose words make me forget about my problems.

You’re the person whose love and respect for me can never be compared to those of others. You’re the light that guides me through life.

You’re the person who is always there to catch me when I fall.

You’re the person I turn to whenever things get rough.  You’re my safety net.  My true protector. 

You’re the person who has never failed me. When I’m upset or sad, you’re there to comfort me. You know that it’s not always advice what I need but someone to listen to me. Someone who understands how I feel and what I’m going through. Someone I can share my pain with without feeling uncomfortable or ashamed.

You’re the person I have an absolute trust in. The person I tell my secrets to because I know you’ll keep them. You know my principles, ideals, and attitudes, and oftentimes, I have the feeling that you know me better than I know myself.

You know my innermost feelings and thoughts.

You want the best for me. You don’t allow those who have hurt me to come near me and hurt me again and you protect me from those who are a threat to my happiness.

You’re the person who accepts me for who I am. You know all my flaws, quirks, insecurities, and fears, but you have never made me feel unworthy because of them or wanted me to change myself. When I’m with you, I don’t need to pretend to be someone I’m not. 

You’re the one who always sees the good in me, even at times when I can’t see it myself.  The one who reminds me of my strength and abilities. The one who always appreciates me and shows how proud of me you are.

You’re the joke that makes me laugh even when I think all hopes are lost.

You’re my helping hand. My crying shoulder.

Even when we don’t see each other for a couple of days, I don’t feel lonely because I know you’re there. Because you call me every day to ask how I am. Because you’re every evening call asking me how my day went.

You’re the one I’ll never regret letting in my life. You’re the one who makes me feel free and alive. You’re the best choice I’ve ever made.

What we have is special.

It’s the connection that can’t be found anywhere else. It’s the silent thoughts that can be heard. It’s the promises that don’t need to be said but will always be kept. It’s the honest words we sometimes don’t want to hear, but we’d rather tell and hear the truth, no matter how harsh or painful it is, than lie to each other.

It’s the compassion, safety, and joy that we feel when we spend time together. It’s the choice to do our best to make each other happy.

It’s the love that makes us feel like we’re ONE.

It’s the strong ties between us that can never be cut.
