I’ll Always Be One Call Away

I’ll always be one call away. If you need a friend to talk to. If you need someone to listen to you and understand you. If you need to just take a trip down memory lane and remember all the times we had together, all the funny moments we shared, all the unforgettable memories and all the nights we stayed up talking about our future and about our lives.

I’ll always be one plane ticket away. If you’re in trouble, if you need someone by your side, if you need someone to hold your hand, you can always count on me and I’ll always be there for you. No matter how long it’s been since we’ve seen each other, no matter how many times we broke each other’s hearts and no matter how long the distance is between us.

I’ll always be near. I’ll always find you.

I’ll always be ready for you. I’ll drop everything for you. I’ll forget my own problem and take care of yours. I’ll forget about our history and come running to you. I’ll forget it all when you need me because I promised you that I’ll be there when it rains and I’ll be there when it shines and I don’t break my promises with you. I can’t break my promises with you.

I’ll always be there for you, all you have to do is ask.

Because at one point, you gave me life. At one point, you made my heart happy and at one point you were all my prayers answered and you were the main reason behind the best years of my life. And it’s hard for me to know that you might be suffering and I’m not there to help. It’s hard for me to know that you’re alone when you have me.

I’ll always be there to remind you that you’re not alone. I’m here. I’ve always been here. I’ll always be here. And I know we both moved on and I know we don’t always stay in touch or say what’s in our hearts but I hope you know that even if I don’t say it much, even if I don’t show it, I’ll always be close to you. I’ll always care about you. I’ll always want to help you when you need someone.

You were always good at reading my silence, you were always good at understanding me without saying a word and I hope this time is no different. I hope you understand that even when I’m silent, you still mean the world to me.

I’ll always be one call away. If you need to talk for hours or if you need to remember that you are loved. I’ll always be there to let you know just how loved and how incredible you are. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
