Eternal Friends

You're a true friend,
that I want you to know,
Our love for each other
has helped us to grow.
We've been through some tough times,
but we've made it through,
The only one I ever trusted was you.

You helped me through anger,
you've chased away fears.
You held me through sadness,
and kissed away tears.

You stayed by my side
when the world turned away.
You helped me see joy
when the skies were all gray.

You were the rainbow
at the end of the storm.
You help me be different
when I shouldn't conform.

You held my hand
when you knew we would fall.
Every heartache,
you saw me through it all.

I'm not sure
I'm always the best friend to you,
I know I'm not perfect,
but this much is true.

When life gets you down,
And there's nowhere to turn,
I'll help you through and
I'll share your concern.

I'll try my best to return every favor,
When you're sure that you'll drown,
then I'll be your lifesaver;
Even if we both go down.

Whether we sink or swim
doesn't matter at all,
Just know that I'll be there
whenever you call.

I'll pull you out
when life pulls you under.
I'll be the sun
when there's lightning and thunder.

And when it's all over,
And we've fought every war,
There's one thing I promise,
Of this I am sure,
When the time comes
that we're put to our rest.
Be sure that you know that,
My friend, you're the best.

At the end of the tunnel,
you'll be my guiding light,
You'll lead me to heaven,
away from the night.

We'll be there together,
and we'll never grow old.
And we'll walk hand in hand
On the streets paved of gold.

I went to a meeting last night. Like usual, we were discussing things with serious faces but it was still joyful. At the middle of the meeting, two of my sisters went to the toilet. Until the meeting was closed to the end, they were still not coming back.

Out of the blue, I got a phone call.

“ Adik, hurry up. Help me. Along faints…..”

I shocked. With my shivering voice, I told the rest about the news. All of the sisters rushed to see what had happened to Along.

When I reached the room, I saw Along lied down on the floor. We got panic. Her face was pale. Alang asked the rest to get her some water.

When we were going to wipe Along’s face with the water,
“ Happy birthday to you…Happy birthday to you… Happy birthday to Alang and Adik… Happy birthday to you…”

Along opened her eyes and woke up.

“ What is this?’, I started to cry while they laughed. Yes, their mission was accomplished. They managed to surprise Alang and me. Later, we were hugging each other…
