Sorry friend I don’t have time to talk to you

to my best friend
Sorry, I can’t be there for you. I try and you don’t open your heart.
We have been friends for many years both as friends and as a family and yet you have not been able to find the courage to reveal what you went through.
You have told me very generally the crisis you have been through.
You asked that I not ask or intervene.
And I had no choice to stand aside and not be there for you.
I feel like the days are passing and I miss so much.
Please know that I am always here for you.
