A Letter To My "Best" Friend
Glitters and smiles - that's what my life is all about.... we're best of friends but at the same time, lovers.
Dear 'best' friend,
It's been a while since we hang out together, just the two of us doing nothing but laugh and talk about everything while splashing our feet on the sands of our favorite beach way back home. But so much has changed since I graduated from this four-corner classroom and things were never been the same again.
It’s funny to think that we're almost grown-up now; with different lives and different aspirations but our friendship stayed the same even if we're million miles away from each other. We still find the time to talk about crazy stuffs all night or the latest happenings around town. We never grow tired of being with each other.
The first time I saw you, I thought you're the most gorgeous guy I have ever seen. Your eyes were perfectly-shaped and your smile can make a heart melt. But you never cared to say hi, just one quick smile and turned away. Right there from the moment, my heart falls in love with you. I never believed in the word "Love at first sight" before.
Think about it, how can you even love a person who was a complete stranger to you? But I never feel the same way before; what I feel was kind of rare feeling called "love". After some time, I heard you sang in school chapel while you played guitar, I never knew you were that talented and by that I admired you from deep inside even more.
You became my inspiration then.
I can't blame you that there were so many girls trying to befriend you. You were kind, passionate, thoughtful and a perfect gentleman. So before I could make one smile at you, I already turned the other way around. I don't have the face or the personality to deserve you, even just for friends. You belong to the other world - with them, though I wished that I’m brave enough to talk to you like them.
Three more years had passed and fate took control of the wheel. We started to exchange messages, hellos and smiles. Time passed slowly and you started telling me about your life, about your family, your sacrifices from the past just to get through school and later on, about the girl who broke your heart.
I listened patiently and very eagerly for every story you poured out because I want to know you better. I want to know the real you - the man behind a cute smile. And I want you to know that I’m the kind of friend you could trust.
I introduced you to my family and they love all about you. You were sweet and kind and very gorgeous. We always have fun hanging out every single day. Array of memories lined up our diary. Like one time we got into this joyriding thing on your motorcycle while letting the rain fall down on us or like when we went night swimming on the beach even though it’s raining.
Crazy things huh.
But what I really love was the time when we went out on a trip, or the time when we celebrated your birthday with a cake and a candle. You smiled a lot and I think that I really love you even more. Or how about when we went to the city just to have fun during school hours?
We always go to parties’ together and you’re the one asking my parent's permission first before taking me out on special nights.
Yes, we fight like cats and dogs never wanting others to win a game or a debate especially when have misunderstandings. But at the end of the day, we’re just back to normal again, and you giving me chocolates to make peace. No wonder I love it when we always have sweet fights.
We talk from time to time about the future but it scares the hell out of me. I don't want this fairy tale to end. I just want forever to be like this, the way we were. You were the kind of guy I always wanted to have - you loved and cared for me and even fight with my suitors.
Maybe that's the reason why other guys were afraid to court me. Just kidding!
You accepted me just the way I am. I don't even have to hide the real me when I'm with you. You saw me at my worst and you still find me pretty. I never lied to you because even if I made some nasty and unforgiveable mistake in my life, instead of leaving, you're always there to pull me up on the mess I've made and helping me to straighten the crooked ways I had in my life.
You taught me how to be positive in every aspect of my life and to carry the lessons learned on the mistakes I have done.
When all my friends betrayed me, you were there to wipe those tears away. People were so mean because they want you too but you spend all your time with me. Because just think of it, how can a beast like me end up with a beauty like you?
But never mind. I don't care what they think, as far as I don't do anything bad to other people, I’m alright. But then, this fairytale story has to end and we have to write another chapter and this time, with a reality-check.
Since then, here we are, never seen each other's shadow again but we're making the most out of it because I know, someday soon we'll be together again. Life can be a happy or sad journey; it's up to us what we want it to be. Those memories will be stuck forever in my heart and no matter what happens; I will always be here for you... because I love you way too much to leave.
Okay, maybe this is the part where I could fill up our perfect love story? Our own dreams together, the sketch of our future home, the first kiss we had... but I'll pass it now. This is only the friendship side of our life. And no matter what happens, we will always stay together.
Maybe I could draft our love story some other time, what do you think?
You are the best I've ever had. So no matter how many years it would take, I'll still be waiting for the time when you will come home, back to me.
I'm now starting to believe that the man standing at the front of the altar on my dream a long time ago... is you.
See you soon?
