For a Special Friend

For a Special Friend

To the closest friend ever
Love and friendship can be so
Beautiful and inspiring
There is no emotion that comes close
Yet it can be the most painful experience 
Anyone can carry
The beautiful side is like a garden of roses
Nurtured with such exquisite care
And in the same moment
Can be as painful
As a crown of thorns around a heart broken into 
So many pieces they can never be put back together
I know because I am in this bright and dark place
And yet I wouldn’t trade it for all the gold, silver,
And diamonds in the world  
If I am  wrong then let be so because
It is my cross to bear until the sun has burned out
And the world is nothing but dust.
I hope she will understand
And not be hurt or offended or angry
Because I love her with all my heart
And value the friendship respect anyone can imagine.
