And just for thought...
I want to write something touching,
to show you how much I love you,
to thank you for guiding me to a place I may have never come without you.
The right words will not come.
I watch as you struggle with a battle I cannot understand or know how to give comfort.
I want to hold your hand as you held mine.
I should have told you sooner but the words would not come.
It is easier to speak through a pen because this pen captures my honesty.
I just want you to know that your words are like a flame in the darkness for me.
I can hear you even when you are no longer sitting across from me.
I know I will never really be without you.
Still, this poem does not say what I need it to.
You taught me that I can accept myself.
You showed me that this life has some sort of plan for me.
You gave me permission to let myself go again.
And as I sit, listening to the world go on around me, I know it is because of you I can hear it.
It is because of you I can allow myself to feel it.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
