Best Friend


Last night you and your best friend had a fight. You decide not to talk to her the next day.

She smiles at you. You grind your teeth at her.

She tells her friends nice things about you. You spread bad rumors about her.

She tries to come and talk to you. But you push her aside.

She thinks you are a great friend. You think she is a terrible friend.

She writes nice notes to you, telling you about the best times you shared together. You write about all the bad times you can remember experiencing together.

Deep down you know she’s sorry. But all you have is hate.

The next day you find a note. It reads:

Dear ————-,

I tried to tell you yesterday, but you didn’t let me speak,
I tried to tell you good things,but you were afraid to hear them.
I tried to smile at you, to take away the hate.
But now it’s time to tell you, even though it’s a bit late. That I am dying.

I have a bad condition and it is getting worse. I’m sorry to have to tell you that I won’t be able to see you today. I wrote this to you today in the hospital.
My time is up.
I’m sorry I should have told you sooner. I’m really sorry about our argument,you are such a great friend.
I promise I shall watch over you,

Lots of love


You run to the hospital to tell her you are sorry,

But only her mum is left.

Her hand clasped over her face.

And she was crying. Down on her knees she prays, for her daughter to come back.

You are too late.

You wish you told her sorry sooner and got to say goodbye.

All friends have their ups and downs, and sometimes you need to say sorry… Don’t wait for the other person to do it first.

Because you never know what could happen.
