I am not one who reaches out much to those I have never met.
So many who know me do not know that deep inside I am so shy.
Trust is something I am so terrified of and it's my biggest silent fear.
But that day I took a chance when I saw you sitting there crying alone.
I didn't even know you but my heart felt your pain so I put my shyness
aside and reached out and say hello.
Hello, to a stranger I don't even know or but your sadness broke my heart.
I smiled at you and you smiled back with caution carefully breaking a small
smile across your face.
I could see you took a risk and that gave me comfort knowing we would be 
good friends.
Time went by so quick you and were in separateable, we shared every single
thought and secret together.
We had become 'best friends' no one could come between us, you were a gift.
Sometimes it surprises you who you meet throughout your life and where you
meet them.
Remember, throughout your day on  any street - people just like me and you
with loneliness and problems.
A best friend comes in the form of a stranger who changes your life forever.
You can't imagine that, that once stranger has and is now and forever more
a gift sent and given from God above.
Everyday I am humbled, blessed that you smiled back at me that day long ago.
