For those with just a few close friends the meaning tilts slightly differently

Casual does not apply nor does passing acquaintance

Only in good times and superficially are not used

Proximity and in person are not requirements

There in silence and sadness

In plenty and blessed

In hard work and sacrifice

In knowing without saying

In understanding beyond words

In truth, in loyalty, in love

In seldom seen but always there

In seen every day but in a simple text message to change your day

In telling you that you inspire them

In an email that says thinking of you and nothing else

In laughter, in tears, in success, in failure

they are in just the being of who you are and who you will be
