To My Best Friend Spu!!

I can still see us arguing and fighting.
I can taste those birthday cakes.
I can still hear your dog barking at me.
Gone are those days.

Funny…they’re still with me.

In the hardest places you found me.
I resisted pain. You were my shield.

I broke. You waited.
When our places reversed, I did the same.

Through our weaknesses and shortcomings.
Through our fears and silliness.
We passed.
Passed with flying colours.

A path of laughter and tears.
Nurtured for 14 years.

My strength and courage faltered,
but u stood strong and tall.
But surprise gripped me when u needed
me most of all.

Loyalty.

I guess we complement each other.
Its brought us so far together.

Emotions and words get mixed up.
When I try to write about us.

But hey! This path of laughter and tears,
has been nurtured for 14 years.

I guess nothing else matters.
