Nen at 40

Today is a very important day of my oldest and most trusted friend, Nen, as she turns 40.  She is my sister from another mother. We call each other Bes (short for bestfriend).

We met when she was 9 and I was 10.  I practically taught her everything (yes, including a lot of kalokohan).  We parted ways when she went to Sisters of Mary for four years.  At first, she thought I have completely forgotten about her because I met many friends while she was inside a school run by nuns.

How can I forget her, when she knows and shared all my pain and sorrows.  Need I say more? I love you, Bes, and Maligayang ika-apatnapung kaarawan!

When we first talked to each other
I knew we would always be friends.
Our friendship has kept on growing
And I'll be here for you to the end.

You listen when I have a problem
And help dry the tears from my face.
You take away my sorrow
And put happiness in its place.

We can't forget the fun we've had
Laughing 'til our faces turn blue.
Talking of things only we find funny
People think we're insane-If they only knew!

I guess this is my way of saying thanks
For catching me when I fall.
Thanks once again for being such a good friend
And being here with me through it all.
