True friendship is sweeter than honey. It is more lasting than one's fondest memories. True friends are indeed very rare like a perfect diamond. Have we remembered the friends we had since childhood? They were our playmates, our companions in our adventures through life. And when we grew older, true friends became our confidante, our immovable strength in times of troubles, the ever present shoulder we could lean and cry on. We cannot go on through life without the presence of our true friends who encouraged us in every new venture we seek in life, in every uncertain portals we were about to enter, and in every relationship we were about to enter. Theirs were the words of wisdom, love and caring that never fail to appease us in our moments of trials.
I had my own shares of friends in my life. They came and had gone as I traversed my own paths in life. But their memories lingered on. In my life, I have always been a drifter. I had moved from place to place, from one work to another. And whenever I closed a chapter in my life, it left a bittersweet memory in my soul. My wife has been my best friend forever. Through thick and thin, we held on to each other, braving the storms that came our way. But now she is in the US to work for our family. And I was left alone lonely and desolate. I know we have to make that sacrifice for our children's future. I have to be the father and mother of our children. And as I feel the pangs of death beckoning to me, I realized that I have a truly and constant best friend forever in my whole life who was always there for me through thick and thin, and through the lowest moments of my life. His name? JESUS CHRIST.
