That thing you really need
It’s the thing you read in books
The storyline you see in movies
The lyrics you hear in songs.
It’s what you keep waiting for,
Hoping it will happen to you,
Anticipating, but trying not to expect it.
It’s what you tell yourself you can live without,
That you can survive on your own,
That it’s not something you need.
But when it arrives, it changes you.
You wonder how you managed to live short of it,
And you remember nothing before it.
The love of a friend is priceless.
Because if fills your heart and soul
With what you long for the most:
Companionship and support.
Knowing someone will always be there no matter what.
