True friends are rare. They are better than precious jewels and hot chocolate. You find them when you least expect and they are a timed connection in the midst of nothingness. True friends trust you and mean it and when the world says otherwise they would rather believe you over anyone else. They don't just claim to trust, yet fall apart when a rumor about you passes them by but in fact believe and protect you for everything you're worth. To them, your word stands strong above all no matter how convincing the deceivers may be and even if time and circumstance takes them away for a while, they never waver.. They always come around and you'll find yourself at home. True friends don't just appreciate and acknowledge you when you're not around, but live out those words in truth. Understanding comes even with a few words and they can read your eyes even when you compel the sun to shine. True friends know you for who you are even if you've changed they help you become comfortable with that part that you feel you've lost. True friends never ridicule your pain but make sure they take care of you for all you've lacked, protecting you from the derision of others. They never publicize the special things they know about you and guarding what's personal is a treasure. True friends don't mind if you share their favorite song and know when you just need a hug even if the blues have no source and explanation. They correct you in love and don't carelessly let you waste your life away. They never tire standing up for you and wouldn't dare sell you out. True friends just sit around with you for no apparent reason and smile a thousand words when vocabulary can do no justice.
True friends are in spirit with their companion so much so you'll know who they are without having to hear them mentioned by name. They bring out the best in you. They inspire you. They believe in you when you don't believe in yourself. True friends are rare.
