the people you are reminded of when you see something they might like and you know this because you know them so well.
They are the people whose pictures you have and whose faces are in your head, regardless.
They are the people you feel safe around because you know they care about you.
They call just to see how you are doing, because a friend doesn’t need an excuse.
They tell you the truth, the first time, and you do the same. You know that if you have a problem, they are there to listen.
They are the people who won’t laugh at you or hurt you, and if they do hurt you they try hard to make it up to you.
They are the people you love, regardless of whether you realize it or not.
They are the people whose hand you can hold, or you can hug or give them a kiss and not have it be awkward because they understand the things you do and they love you for them. They stick with you and stand by you. They hold your hand. They watch you live and you watch them live and you learn from them. Your life is not the same without them.
