That's what friends do.

What if I was dying.
Would you be at my side?
What would you expect from me?
To tell you why I love you?
To tell you that I'll always remember you?
To tell you to keep me in your heart?
You should already know,
That I love you,
That I want to be with you forever,
That I'll never forget you,
Even in the worst of times,
I'll be at your side, you'll be at mine,
Encouraging each other,
To keep going,
That we'll make it through,
That we can be together forever,
Because that's what friends do,
And I shouldn't even have to tell you,
That I love you.
I live for your smile, your happiness,
And I hope I'm the reason that you're smiling, too.
I hope that I mean the same to you,
Because that's what friends do,
And I love you.

This poem is very insightful.  How do you write so insightfully if never having gone through something like this?
