First, the meeting. Then...

We became fast friends, allies, companions. It was an easy relationship, with no pressure. While everyone swirled around us searching-wooing-hoping, we were carefree. He was secure in his love for the one who lit up his eyes. And me? I was enjoying our friendship, which was the one thing in my life that made sense and was easy.

Life surged ahead bringing many changes in my life. Old habits were kicked, and new ones were formed. Old flames were extinguished, and new ones were fanned. My one constant during this time was him.

I savored every minute I was able to spend with him. Our time together was like a soothing balm to my soul. He spoke often of the one who held his heart, and he listened to me share of the one who had broken mine. Over sub sandwiches and watered down pink lemonade our hearts became intertwined. We became the best of friends.
