You know there is to know about me. I've set my walls aside and let you in. I took the risk of getting hurt by you because I know you will never hurt me and if ever you do, I know it is because you love me and it is for my own good. You are the only person I'm truly honest with. I tell you everything, even my negative thoughts. I tell you when I'm mad at everyone for no prominent reasons and you still accept me. Because of your loyalty, I have come in terms that maybe there really is something good about me that you are still here and still my friend. I could write to you for days, I could even write you a novel and it still wouldn't be enough to explain how much you mean to me and how much I'm grateful to you. If I am your rock, you are my inspiration; my inspiration to become a better person and love myself as much as you love me. I am still growing and I make lots mistakes and I have to thank you for being patient with me and always forgiving my faults. If I have to describe you, you are that friend that if they can't pick me up or reach out to me, you'll sit right beside me as I learn to stand up on my own and we'll continue our journey. You're that person; the kind of person that I exactly need. And because I've never met someone like you, I want to preserve everything; our laughter, our memories, our pictures; everything. So in the future I could show my child how great of a person you are and we could look back and say, "I spent my life with the right people." When I was in seventh grade, I only expected to live until eighteen, I never believed that I was strong enough to handle life after that and now I'm thinking about college, marriage, and growing old with you and everybody else. You've opened up so many things for me that it's not fair that I can't do anything spectacular for you but be myself and love you genuinely. I am an impulsive person. I give up when things get hard. I take the easy way out. But please know that I have the clearest conscience that I'll be around the corner. I know that you might get tired of me, dealing with me, always waiting for me to come back when I walk out, you might even get tired of our friendship one day. If ever that day comes I need you to know that I'm forever changed because of your existence. I don't know exactly know what you see in me that makes you reach your hand out to me and patiently wait along my side, I hope one day I see it in me as well. I know that I'm a strong girl, I just lose my way sometimes and it takes a while for me to get on the right direction again but I hope that whenever I find my path again and again, you'll be there, waiting for me with a caring heart and loving arms. I love you Kathleen, I love you very much.
