Summary: My best friend has been a source of love, laughter, support and inspiration for years. One of the strongest and most talented people I know. For all her struggles, she's worked her backside off to come out the other side and still be amazing and strong and compassionate and funny! When we were teenagers I idolised her. She was everything I wanted to be and did everything I wanted to do. She still does. x

When you shone,
I glowed
in your shadow.
Stretching your fingers;
with mine
through the years.           
Tester of dreams.
I was not afraid
when you’d
go first;
encourage me
to leap and
Youth faded.
Our present
filled with memory.
The music of tears;
agony of mirth.
I feel your fingers
find mine.
I smile
and remember.

Very nice, Jo, you really feel the personal connection here, I love "tester of dreams" and "the music of tears" lovely phrases.

A testimony to an important relationship. I particularly liked

The music of tears;
agony of mirth.

and the repeated image of touching hands/fingers.
