This is dedicated to my dear friend who i have been loving for so long. my best friend who knew me and helps me until now.


True Friends

I care. I am concerned but I don't worry.
If I don't worry, I don't care?
It's wrong. It's irony.
The more I worry about you or your problem,
The more stupid will I become.
The more I worry about you or your problem,
The more I can't help you.
The more I worry about you or your problem,
The more I add to your burden.

I may not be there at your side but that does not mean I don't care for you.
I may not seem to care when you're crying but that does not mean I don't care for you.
I may just pass by when I see you down but that does not mean I don't care for you.

I don't know the reasons of your agony and you expect me to be there and find remedy for your sickness?
I have to know the whys' first.

I always care for you my friend.
I'm thinking of means and ways to help you overcome your problem.
I'm thinking of things that I can do to make you happy and okay.

I care for you.
Does it have to be always visible and naked?
No it does not need to.

But if I know things on your side will get worse upon lending my hands, you think I'll still have the courage to walk near you and ask you the what and why?
No I won't because I know I won't be a help.

I love you friend.
I love you always and forever.
I love you that I can sacrifice.
I love you that I can hurt others.

You have laid open a difficult situation for a friend. To be a strong friend with substance and emotional and mental means to make a difference, we cannot let ourselves become depleted. It is a fine line to walk. You have made your case well.
