My Dear Friend

My Dear Friend,
don't lie to me,
tell me the truth,
Will I really be okay without you?
My Dear friend,
I don't want therapy,
all I really want is for you to be with me.
My Dear Friend,
tell me it will be okay,
give me a hug as I cry,
tell me that you know that I really am not fine.
My Dear Friend,
tell me the truth always,
even if it hurts me,
I need to know.
My Dear Friend,
I needed you and I miss you and you happiness,
but I will keep living because of you.
My Dear Friend,
I love you and your honesty for when you did tell me it will be okay.
