Your name is written upon the walls of my heart
Etched with the longing of your love upon my consciousness.
Your loving friendship and guidance remains with me always.
Together we have grown, traversing the detours of life's travails
With tears and laughter
And together in friendship we will go on.
Love is fleeting, an impermanence granted us but for a blink
But the steadiness and constancy of our friendship
Your wonder is inscribed upon the tablet of my being
A sheet once blank but enriched now
With the relationship we had.
Yes, we will grow and love
But know that you have enriched who I am
And who I will be
