What some people don’t realize is how easy it really is to be able to stare into each of your best friends’ eyes, their souls, and be willing to say that you love them with every fiber of your being. To be able to say to each of them that if the moment ever came, you would be willing to die for them, without hesitation. However, the difficult thing, the scary thing, is realizing within you that it is true. That you actually care enough about these people, these people that you consider your family, to die for them. They are your life, and no matter what it takes, you will do everything in your power to be there for them, to help them, to hold them, to cry with them, to laugh with them, to love them.

Of course, they don’t quite believe you. They don’t believe someone can truly care that much about them to be willing to give their life for them. They don’t admit it, but they still say thank you and they love you back, but deep down, they’re afraid of someone truly loving them that much, afraid of being worthy of that love that they’ve never before known.

A new day dawns, as all new days do, and the time passes as time must, your routine the same as ever, but then the moment comes. In one instant, all of your lives are changed forever as you prove to your friends that they are capable of being loved as you love them, that you would in fact die for them. And as your last breath leaves your body in a quiet hush, your friends, no, your FAMILY, weep even more so as they glance the smile on your face. You’re content because though you are dead, your life lives on, and they’ll remember your love, they will remember their fallen sister who loved them more than they ever knew, who will watch over them as they fight each day to survive the cruel world they were forced into. It is your meaning to life, and your meaning to death, to watch over them, to help them, to love them. After everything is over, all is done and said, that one simple fact is your only truth, and it is what drives you through every moment of death, and what drove you through every moment of life. You found the strength to love.
My friends and I have been through a lot together, and I know that we only have more to get through. This came to me as I was thinking about them, and recent events that were hard for each of us.

omg... umm. Loss of words.

except for this is exactly how I feel about my friends and family. I know I love them so much that I would die for them.

Though, unlike this thought invoking piece, I don't know if I could will myself enough to die for them, or if I would have enough courage.

Can a coward love with every fiber of their being?

I hope that if such a crucial moment arose, I would be able to lay down my body for a friend.

sorry this was such a long comment.
