IT introduced me to you.
Fleeting hi and bye.

Once just a contact online,
gradually evolved into a pillar of strength.

Never thought you might be my life buoy;
walks and trips we went,
further solidified the bond we had.

Right at the critical point,
you flew right by and pushed me to the edge.
Jumping off the cliff with thoughts of drowning,
I opened my eyes to see soft land and yes,
thanks for lending me your wings.

Walking this far with doubts and questions,
I stumbled but I knew you were always there.
Though you did not hold all the solutions,
but your presence was the best answer.

The flying butterfly, colourful and stop only in moments.
My saviour whom I call friend.
