It began innocently enough,
Two people saying hello.
What starts as flirty banter, back and forth,
Becomes endless chatter, with hearts a-flutter.
A timely request, thoughtfully sent,
Starts the journey of new friendship.
In time, as the conversations grow longer,
A realization, something deeper is developing.
Real life crisis of one,
Brings compassion from the other.
Separated by time and distance,
Even an ocean apart.
The bond of Friendship,
Grows stronger day by day.
Yet in no time at all.
You have become,
Above them all,
MY DEAREST FRIEND.
