Sulked and sat. That’s what you have done. 
A new person’s life you’ve barley begun. 
I watch you now in your time of despair. 
Thinking about how you’ve changed and no longer care. 

Your body is raped and your mind has been torn, 
I sit here hoping for each day no more. 
It’s hard to watch and painful to see, 
The life you chose has now been thrust onto me.
 You need to get better, why can’t you see. 
Life is precious and your not who I need you to be. 

I want you to go back to the person you were, 
I’ll be by your side and aid as a cure. 
You have the strength we both know it so, 

So let’s go together and take some control.
There is a light we both see it near.
But you dead and gone is my only fear.

    Hi James I believe we all have free will. When other's don't use it for the best in life then it can seem like a curse especially if it's personal.All we can do is love them, be there for them and if we have Faith pray for them.Through your words I sense your anger and your fear but also your love.And I know your love is the greater of these.I feel for you and the pain you're both going through.Although not knowing the situation only your feelings I hope for the best for you both.Love June(S)

    James; I'm not sure what's ailing your loved one but be strong. Continue to reassure them you love them and need them around. Pray to your God and trust he will see you through. Lay
