Be happy, everything will ALWAYS work out.

As I near the end of this long sad day
The leaves, as they begin to fall so light,
Mayhap they may take all the pain away
On wings so gentle like a fairy sprite.
So soft it is, and I feel it inside
And I wish for cheer more than pain.
Not all strong emotions can I divide
From one another I shall not contain.
But hark! I hear the voice it is so clear,
So loud, and so soft, and so beautiful,
And your sweet voice full of love brings me cheer,
The pain is gone, a moment, all is as crystal.
I cannot shake the pain I feel tonight
Your voice gives me hope and the pain a fright.

The author's comments:
I wrote this for a school assignment and only after I wrote it did I realize what it meant to me. During the time I wrote it, I was dealing with an emotional friend who was in love with me. The only thing that kept me going was my boyfriend of two years, whom I love dearly. I care for my friend a lot, but I was beginning to fall into a deep depression because of him. My boyfriend helped pull me out, but I had to do it myself.
