We were just IMing people in the chat
rooms being incredibly weird. Most people were scared of us and didn't
respond. We IMed one guy and said "I like pizza", a line from a movie we
had just watched. This guy immediately wrote back saying "Me too!!" it
was the most beautiful start of a friendship that would last forever. We
talked for very long. My friend and I were on all day talking to him.
He was kind and so real. He was like nobody I had ever spoken to online
or let alone ever. In just weeks in out friendship, we became very
close. His name was Samee. He Djed, went to church regularly, cared for
his bothers and sisters, loved life more than anyone I had ever known
before. Its been 2 years since that memorable day.
Since then we have talked at least twice
a day. He was always there for me when nobody else was. He cared for me
more than anything. We shared secrets, fears, happinesses, frightening
times, exciting times, and in between times. He was always the one I
came to for help, advice, and somebody to talk to.
When I got my first date, before telling
anyone else...I told him. Whenever I was feeling bad about myself, he'd
always remind me of how incredibly special I am. Samee saw me with his
heart, not eyes. I know him so well...better than I know myself. We are
best friends. I've never even met him. But he's there for me more than
my friends where I live. His heart is truly made of gold. He has so much
confidence, faith, and belief in me. He reminds me of this everyday I
live. Without him, I don't know if I would have made it through some
really difficult times in my life.
We have come so far. We have both made a
promise to never lose faith and to always believe that one day we will
find out way to each other. I live in California, while he lives in New
York. But our promise will always be there for us.
Samee is truly God's creation. The mould of all human beings, The true
child of the stars. And in pictures I have seen of him...I could swear
there is a halo over his head. Life shining gleefully in his eyes. He is
a true inspiration on how to live life. But he has taught me the most
important lessons of my life. Only being 16, he has enough wisdom to be
hundreds of years old. When I'm sad...he immediately feels depressed.
When he is happy, no matter how sad I am...I become all smiles.
The most important lesson he taught me was to always believe in myself.
God has given us this incredible life, and its our gift back to him to
live it to it's fullest. We must never forget to live life. Never
