Letter to an Estranged Amiga


Below is a letter that I am trying to have properly translated into Spanish, followed by my attempt at a Spanish translation. Could someone please proofread this and verify the accuracy of the translation?

Happy Mother's Day, my friend.

I want to tell you that the years of our friendship are a treasure.

Your kindness and comfort have helped me to survive the most difficult challenges of my life. The laughter, the fears and troubles, the pain and the joy we have shared will be with me forever. Through all we have experienced I had hoped that our continued friendship would stand in defiance of all those who tried meant to hurt us. Although we were separated by many miles, I had hoped that our hearts would remain near.

No matter what the future holds, I want you to understand that you are now, and always will be my best friend. You were my counselor, my confidant, and, with every breath, the rhythm of my heart. I have two wishes: May you be happy and healthy in your life. And that you will call me again, when you feel that you can, and keep in touch with me. One day I hope that we can see each other again. My thoughts of you are a cherished memory. I will carry you in my heart for the rest of my life. Please understand that I will never let our friendship die, and I long to hear from you once again.

Feliz Dia de la Madre, mi amiga.

Quiero decirles que los años de nuestra amistad es un tesoro.

Su amabilidad y la comodidad me han ayudado a sobrevivir a los retos más difíciles de mi vida. A través de todos los que hemos vivido yo tenía la esperanza de que nuestra amistad se sostiene en contra de todos aquellos que intentaron decir que nos duele. A pesar de que fueron separados por muchas millas, tenía la esperanza de que nuestros corazones se mantendría cerca.

No importa lo que depara el futuro, quiero que usted entienda que usted es ahora, y siempre será mi mejor amiga. Usted fue mi consejero, mi confidente, y, con cada respiración, el ritmo de mi corazón. Tengo dos deseos: Que sea feliz y saludable en su vida. Y que usted me llame otra vez, cuando usted siente que puede, y mantenerse en contacto conmigo. Un día espero que podamos ver otra vez. Mis pensamientos de ustedes son un valioso recuerdo. Te voy a llevar en mi corazón por el resto de mi vida. Por favor, comprenda que yo nunca me deje morir nuestra amistad, y me largo a escuchar de usted una vez más.
