Sacrifices to be that Best Friend!

Right at the heart

I am struck!

Deeper it goes,

Every time I think about it.

Thinking I can handle it,

Since that’s how I have gotten this far.

For them I have prioritized

With no costs, I can be that best friend!


Smiling my pain away,

As if it’s nothing

But really….

My insides are drowning

Tears welling up

Not outside but inside it’s raining.

Losing part of myself

In every way I have lost!


Who would have noticed?

My struggling to stand-up

Even if anyone do,

I’ve indoctrinated,

With a big happy smile!

To them, I’m doing just fine

So no pity or feeling remorse from them

I have no strength to endure that part!


Mourning for my own loss,

Feel great triumph for them happiness

Rather be saddened

Than seeing them hurting!

Do whatever it take

Even for my own life

I would immolate/sacrifice,

Just to see that beautiful smile!

Even if I receive nothing in return

Still willing to give my all

Just to be that best friend!
