You are my favorite person: I cannot imagine life before or without you, but I know it would be so much worse. Your presence is a diadem: I feel just like royalty when I am around you. You are the queen of my universe. Your mind's a shear that quickly prunes through the bullshit and gets to the heart of the matter. Your conversation is poetry, blunt wit, and corny randomness. No one else can leave my belly hurting from laughter. Life with you is a sweet dramedy. Sometimes your grumpiness is quite insufferable, but even at your worst, I find you lovable. We don't always get along, but we never, ever fight. If one of us is wrong, then the other makes it right. Your heart is fragile like an egg: it can hold a lot, but it is easily broken. Strength conceals vulnerability. I'll never truly understand everything you go through, but I'll always be open to everything you reveal to me. I like counting stars with you because we refuse to let this society box us in. Brown-sugar space-age feminist, now that I have found you, I hope never to lose you. I am so thankful that you're my friend.
