To the angel in the rose-covered leather jacket

Posted By on Mon, May 21, 2018 at 12:00 PM

Thank you for letting me pet your tiny dog while you ordered coffee...just because I said I was sad. Thank you for asking why I was sad. I was unprepared for my own outburst of crying as I said "my best friend just died." Her death was a long time coming (cancer), I just hadn't said it aloud yet and was trying to be tough. Thank you for hugging me tightly. Thank you for saying I would be in your heart. Thank you for being there when I didn't know I needed someone. And thank you for showing me people like you still exist in the world. I'll try and meet your example and be the angel for others, I'll just look less cool doing it. XOX. —Redhead Crying In Coffee
