A Letter of Encouragement:

On Trials and Partings

The war called life

Rages among us

Making our burdens heaver

With each increasing hardships

.

My friend

Though it is tough times

We live in

We must stay strong

.

For this is only the beginning

Of life's cruelty

Though he shall strike us with his thorn whip

We must not stand down

.

And even as our enemies

Crash their swords

Upon our shields

We must be brave

.

For even though

They stab us

We must fight back

And hope to be alive in the morrow

.

Now my friend

As we go to war

Hand-in-hand

With heavy hearts

.

Do not fear

For I shall never forget you

You are my dearest friend

And for that I thank you

.

You have given me hope

And a better life

You helped me see the light

Through the darkest of times

.

Through sorrows and joys

Through tears and laughter

Through the incline and decline of life

You have stood by me

.

And now that we must go

To foreign lands

Keeping fraudulent smiles

And deceitful countenances

.

I pray that we are able to

Live through these tribulations

And see the sun

Shining atop the green hills

.

I wish we can go back to our glory days

To the way things were

But in this world we live in

Change is necessary as painful as it is

.

Do not think that

We may never see each other again

How can we not?

It is a small world we live in

.

Fate shall guarantee

That our paths shall cross

May it be a busy street

Or a quiet sidewalk we shall meet

.

And with every fleeting glance

And every smile exchanged

I hope you remember the times that we shared

And understand my gratitude

.

I refuse to say farewell

For that would mean the end of it all

Instead I shall say "pinky 'square'"

For I promise to keep you in my heart to the end of time

FIN


I hope you enjoyed, Oh and pinky 'square' was intentional, there's a back story it-promise
