Just because.

"Let me be the one you call
If you jump, I will break your fall,
lift you up and fly away with you into the night.
If you need to fall apart, I can mend a broken heart,
If you need to crash, then crash and burn, you're not alone."

-Crash and Burn by Savage Garden

each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born. the sharing of joy, whether physical, emotional, psychic, or intellectual, forms a bridge between the sharers which can be the basis for understanding much of what is not shared between them, and lessens the threat of their difference.

when we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. the friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.
