Searching for a reason to fight,

Searching for a reason to overcome this plight.

Suddenly your voice fills my mind,

Being Warm,

Being Kind.


I know you ache,

Your life is a battle everydaySuddenly,

I have a reason to fight,

A reason to overcome the darkest nights.

I will come and save you from your pain,

As you did saved me from mine,

With nothing to gain.

And hopesfully,

My long time friend is suffering from Lymphoma,I just recently learned this and was too busy trying to figure my way out of my responsibilities. I came to realize that this was something real. It was something that caused him great pain. He was always there to listen to my little rants, to save me from my depression and now it's my turn to save him. I hope I can because I love him and I'd to anything to make him happy again.
