A letter to someone who will never read it.

Mar 14, 2010
Dear you,

Thank you for your trust. Thank you for your honesty. I am so sorry I have not been a better friend and hope you can forgive me my selfish indulgences.

I saw a picture of you today on what was likely one of the worst days of your life. I can only imagine what you were feeling, thinking, and fearing. I see you in a different light now, a richer light, one with murky red tones of pain, blue hazes of fear, and the grey of an unresolved past. I've seen sadness in your eyes and realize that after a long friendship, I knew something else was there, but didn't dig deeper.

It breaks my heart to know that you've carried such a burden alone, while you have carried me through such tough times with dedicated and generous resolve.

Your youthful pain, your sunken eyes, you pale skin - none are the reflection I know of my friend. In one instant a life can change and you, the person I know and love, are not the man in that picture.

I want to bring you strength and help you find resolution in this chapter of your story so the next epic adventure can begin.
