"To the world you may not be someone, but to someone you may be the world" and "Never frown because you never know who's fallen in love with your smile" <3


If I fall,
Will you catch me?
If I cry,
Will you hold me?
If I died would you miss me?

Am I alone?
Is anyone there?
Does anybody out there
even care?

I hide my pain,
I hide the truth,
because I'm afraid to get hurt,
I'm unsure what to do.

My eyes sting and burn
from the tears waiting to pour out,
but I can't let them go,
Can't make a sound.
Others would judge me,
they would see my weakness.

This smile I wear everyday,
once i'm alone
it fades away.
It's fake.
It's a mask.
But no one seems to notice.
Until the mask cracks.

It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

My best friend asked me once, "If I died today, would anyone care enough to say goodbye?"  I told him, "I wouldn't have to say goodbye, I would save you.  I care, even if no one else does.  You have at least one person on this Earth who loves you, cares for you, and would miss you when you're gone."  I really appreciate this poem.
