The Ultimate Friend

Guiding me in words and actions so plain

Guiding me in ways I cannot explain

You were the truest of friends

Always there for me until the bitter end

Pushing me to grow, expand and change,

Nudging me in directions that were truly strange

You helped and supported me, holding my hand

Leading me on a path to something more grand

I never got to truly thank you as should have been your due

but only because you left me before I was through

You just up and died on that sunny August day

My heart was ripped out ... I stumbled, almost lost my way

You prepped everyone that you knew

Your day was coming, your body was through

Through fighting and hurting, I'm glad you're not in pain

But that doesn't help with my guilt and shame

I should have been there during your last days

But you didn't want me to worry, that was just your way.

Selfless as usual, even at the end

Deep down I know that you were just being a good friend.

How bad you had gotten, I didn't know

You wouldn't tell me so I could continue to grow.

I was in school full-time, working and raising my four

As you quickly and quietly slipped your foot in the door

The door to your future, one temporarily without me

The one that led you to God and magnificent beauty

Your mom called me with a very heavy heart

She told me your new journey was about to start.

I raced to the hospital the following day

Knowing that I didn't have a clue what to say.

You were the one, so good with words

I knew I had to say something, I had to be heard.

You were holding on to life, dealing with the pain

Just so I could see you once again

You told me you loved me, I told you back

I told you to let go, to stop fighting the attack

Body under attack, you weren't the person I knew

But in a small miracle, I was able to see though

All the pain and suffering you had endured

I saw you in my mind before you incurred

This horrible disease that took you from me

I thank God for letting me see

I drove home that day with a heavy heart

Knowing that it would be time for a fresh start

A start of a life, one without you

I didn't know what to think or what I would do

I had promised you I'd shine, that I'd make it through

You left me that night, but little did I know

You had worked to take care of me, to help me grow

You had your friends come around to check on me

So I wouldn't be alone, so that I could see

That you would always be there, just in a different sense

In their own special ways they reminded me of the lady by the fence

The one I met twelve years ago

The one who helped out and watched me grow

Unselfish you were, The Ultimate Friend

I will remember you until my time on Earth ends.

Your relationship with your bestfriend truly sounds like me and shawn, i could see him in every word of this poem. Though it made me sad, thank you for sharing about "our" ultimate friends!
