When the dark days take you,
And hide you deep within.
Remember that I’m always here,
On the outside looking in.
If I could help to set you free,
You know I’d gladly do so.
I send my cheery thoughts to you,
But somehow they never get through.
I try to vanquish she who holds you,
If only I could find a way.
But Lady Depression holds so tight,
And she’s such a hard foe to slay.
She pulls you deep within yourself,
And the tangles of self doubt grow.
Until you see just worthlessness,
Not the wonderful person I know.
Sometimes when I look into your eyes,
I see nothing but darkness there.
I wish that I could bring you back,
And the joy of living we’d share.
I hope that when your mood has lightened,
And you read these words…this plea.
Take them deep into you heart,
And with them a small part of me.
This poem is dedicated to three friends of mine who have had some form of depression for as long as I have known them. They are all very talented people who's talents go to waste because of how depression drags them down and tears at their self image. I wish I could help them more, but all I can do is be here if and when they want me to be.
I hope they know that I will always be here...
