Many pretend to be your friend, but they will spill your secrets for free, encourage self deception for fear you will resent their honesty, gloat at your shortcomings, and stand silent while enemies condemn you.
If I leave today, thanks to death's soft kiss
or thanks to lack of courage,
please know I will never let the memories of you fade away
and abandon either of us...
you mean far too much to me to lose for any reason;
so thank you
