Friends are like petals upon a rose.
Some are distant from your heart. You see them rarely. You have little communication. Still, you are connected.
Some lean towards you. You catch up now and then. You communicate a little. Just like old times.
Others are closer to your heart. You see them often. You can tell them most things. You have fond memories.
And then there are those who are so very close to your heart that you feel you couldn’t live without them. You see them always. You can tell them anything and you do. You feel safe in their presence. You know when they are hurting.
Friends are like petals upon a rose – they form precious layers. They support you. They are a part of you.
And the fragrance from your life is spread evenly across those friendships. Just the right amount.
Like the rose, not every petal is always perfect, something you must remember; but together they form layer, upon layer, upon layer of beautiful completeness.
