“thankful” doesn’t suffice to describe the gratitude i have now that you’re slowly stepping back into my life. we’ve gone our own separate ways for so long that i nearly forgot how nice it felt to have a friend like you in my life. and, though we’re quite far away, you once again feel so close to my heart.
they say that “you don’t know what you have until it’s gone.” over the years we’ve had our crying, screaming, and fighting but i don’t regret living through all those moments filled with bitter pain. you made me stronger through the struggles. however, all these negative aspects fade away when i compare it to the memories and experiences i’ve shared with you along the way.
with you, it was easy to laugh so hard to the point that tears came out of my eyes. every day i spent with you was always an adventure filled with trust, loyalty, and learning. i missed how willing you’d be to pay for my food, the video calls that lasted hours but felt like seconds, and how we entrusted one another with secrets we sworn not to tell a single soul.
you were one of the best friends i’ve ever had. and i’m glad that you’re here again for this chapter in my life. so thank you for coming back. i don’t think you realize how much i need you now… more than ever. i appreciate always. for now and forever.
