Dedicated to a friend I am so fond of.

The friendship between humans is such a beautiful thing. It's also funny how when two individuals from completely different backgrounds meet and later on become friends so close that they become inseparable from each other. They eat together, shop together, gossip together, tell jokes and laugh together or even share their sadness when emotions swell.

"I will lend you my shoulder when your tears keep falling because I want you to know that I will always be there and not let you cry alone. Drench my shoulders, I don't care. As long as you feel relieved, it's all that matters to me."

That is how friends are. I want to be that friend to you.

When one plans to leave, the other feels the ache and dreads the leaving of that very dear friend.

It does not matter where you are going or how long you will be gone, but it's the desire to keep the friendship strong against time and distance is what matters the most. You told me that you will never forget me but you are worried our friendship will grow cold when we don't see each other in future. However, all I could see is your vulnerable side and you were pessimistic because you were afraid. So afraid that we will lose this friendship.

Do not ever think that way, my dear. Where there's a will, there's a way. After all, we are walking and breathing on the same planet. I do not have to go to another galaxy to keep in touch with you. Be more optimistic, will you?

You told me not to cry but you are crying yourself. How would that makes me feel? I could feel your pain and the fear of loss. I would not want you to let those tears stream down because they are better saved for something better. Turn them into tears of happiness, perhaps?

"Cry not for sadness but rather for happiness because the tears of sadness bring more tears to the cheeks but the tears of joy will disappear into a smile"

I am not trying to indicate that you cannot cry for sadness. When emotions get too overwhelming, it's hard not to let those tears stream down.

I just want you to know that everything you do is not a destiny but rather it's a choice you make for yourself. No matter how much I do not want to see you leave, I will never force you to stay but will support you in every way I possibly can. Never try to predict what the future holds for it's only God alone that has the master key to all the doors of His plans.

Farewells are simple not because of the mere word 'bye' but because of the simplicity of how we take it.

Let's cherish and celebrate this moment while we still have it. =)
