An Entire Lifetime

June 17, 2010
I've known this person
My entire life
He's supported my everymove
Even when they weren't the one's he would choose
We've argued
We've cried
We've watched eachother grow
For 15 years
He's been my best friend
We've gone for rides
In the middle of the night
Milk shake trips
Pancake trips
Waffle trips
Slice-of-cake-the-size-of-your-head trips
We've stared over the Blue Ridge Mountains together
We've stared out over oceans and lakes together
Realizing how we're just small part of such a huge picture
We've drunk hot chocolate together in the dead of winter
We've sipped on sweet lemonade in the heat of summer
We've jumped on crunchy leaves in autumn
And Watched the flowers come to life in spring
We've walked through parks
And grocery stores
And fields
And schools
And the scariest moments together
We've walked together the path of life,
Me always knowing he was there
He always beleiving in me
Me only having been there for part of his life
He always having been a part of mine
He's always been there
For me to lean on
No matter what.
So how is it,
This person could suddenly be so far gone,
That it's like we're strangers all over again
Having to re-establish everything we've learned and done
For my entire life
