To My Best Friend: Thank You For Being My Sunshine

To my Forever,

It’s hard to put into words what you mean to me.

You’ve been my everything from the beginning. You have stuck by me through the hardest parts of my life, through every heartbreak, every challenge, and the constant mistakes I have made. You have seen me at my worst, and know my truest self and still, you are  there for me. Your undeniable love is evident in the way you talk, laugh and care about me. It’s amazing how you can take the most horrible situation and make me laugh.

You truly get me, and for that I am forever grateful. There are not many people in this world that I can fully be myself with, but I am lucky to say you are one of them. You understand my crazy and love me for it. You know me better than I know myself. You are my everything. Life would be dull without you in it. You are my everyday, my shining star, the one who I would do anything for.

Thank you for appreciating me. For loving me. For taking on life with me. For listening to me, and for understanding me. For attempting to teach me how the world works and for crying with me when it f*cks us over.

Thank you for your wisdom. For listening to my stories and for helping me with every situation that life hands me. What would I do without you?

I’m grateful for your wake up texts every morning and for our daily phone calls. I wouldn’t want to spend every minute of every day with anyone else. You “get” me in a way that no one else has ever “gotten” me. You understand the deepest parts of my soul. I connect with you on a level like no other.

I love you just as much as I did all those years ago starting out highschool together.  I’m grateful for your sense of humour, how everything is funny when we are together. How you try to make me a better person, how you care about me. I am confident that for you, there is no one in this world who could replace me and how you know I feel the same about you.

You make each and every day better. Thank you for being the sunshine in my life. You make the horrible days bearable. We have come so far, and I am so proud of you and excited to see where we will go in life. I wouldn’t trade any of our perfect moments for the world. You understand my truest self and love me for it. Through all of life’s ups and downs, we have remained constant, and for that I am eternally grateful.

Love always,
Your Best Friend
