Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green


I was there for you as you watched sin engulf his eyes,
Present when pain became your only comfort.
I was there when teardrops became your only escape,
When even Life turned its back on your cries.
Remember when I was there
As he abandoned your heart to darkness,
And I turned on the lights?
I was nearby when you sat alone,
Desperately hoping for a friend.
And, God knows I was there
To hold your hand
When your fingers trembled,
There to lift your head high when you simply couldn’t on your own,
There to steady you whenever you stumbled upon broken fragments of love.

I was always there for you when you needed me.

But can you tell me
Where you were
For me?

" a shattered world is only an opening into a new beginning with laughs, smiles, and love all around enter the world of the light and away from the broken darkness"

Truly powerful and inspiring my friend. I enjoyed most of all your emotion that ebbed and flowed through your work with such ease as you always do. It seems this poem has had a mind and way of things that is its own which was also very enjoyable. Pure omazement, and i know i do say this again and again you will go far with this becuase you are beyond words and beyond talent. * applauds loudly for your article*
