For You

when life tells you fail
and questions always flood
and you have a ripped sail
and your tears feel like blood

when love seems so fake
and your dreams fall apart
and your fears you can't shake
and your friends all depart

a crack in your heart
the pain all seeps out
will you play the right card?
or fall with a shout

a give then a take
you feel just so caged in
so many people fake
in this life can we win?

I can't give you much
with my weakness I aspire
I try to be more
and your strength I admire

forever and always
my words spoke so small
when you stumble through the days
I'll be there when you fall

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem in the wake of our family moving, and then moving again a year later. During this time, a friend came into my life who inspired, encouraged, and supported me. This poem is the result.
