This Poem Was Written For You
This poem has been written for you.
It was created for your eyes.
You have been searching for me
under your dark grey skies.
I'm glad our paths have crossed.
I have been searching for you too.
Stay here and do not leave me.
Please read me all the way through.
I am grateful for whatever problem,
has led you here to me tonight.
That means you were searching for some guidance,
to help you through your fight.
I was written to acknowledge your sadness.
Please remember you are not alone.
I beg of you to sit and read me,
hurting yourself I do not condone.
I was written to tell you,
the pain your are feeling gets better.
Keep me close to your body,
there isn't a storm, together we can't weather.
Please do not wipe away your tears.
You don't have to hide your sorrow.
Re-read me over and over again,
when you feel you won't make it to tomorrow.
Rip me to pieces if you must.
If it works, yell, scream, even shout.
I will still be here for you,
if it will help get your anger out.
If I could show you your reflection,
and you could see yourself from my point of view,
with your reddened eyes and tear stained cheeks,
you'd see the strength you have to make it through.
I am so glad you are still reading.
You have made it so far.
At least I know you are still with me.
Wherever in this world you are.
I commend you for fighting through.
Your efforts have not been in vain.
Please hold on and stay with me,
as I continue helping you through your pain.
You see, the two of us are very similar.
We may have even traveled the same path.
Been forgotten, betrayed, or even rejected.
Perhaps we've felt the same wrath.
If my words could reach from this paper,
I would have them create a hand.
For a soft embrace or for you to hold,
or perhaps as the one that helps you stand.
If these words could rise and create a voice,
I would have them whisper in your ear.
A kind word, a voice of reason,
providing you with what you need to hear.
I would stay here to provide you comfort,
if I could continue on forever.
Please believe me when I tell you,
I will always be here for you whenever.
If there is ever another time or night,
you feel lost or cannot go on,
just pull me up or pull me out,
I will stay with you until dawn.
