You can do it...you can, you can, you can...


how i wish i could tell you
all that i see in you
your strenghts
positive qualities
ma'aylos
all the beautiful things that we all see
so strongly displayed
in your essence

my sister
my friend
a piece of me...

i reach down and touch you
in your deep pit
you are cold
seeking warmth
but...you don't know where to find it...
i...
i am right here

and you tell me you see me
you do see
but you still feel alone
alone and
unloved...

you are hurting
in pain
so lonely
but i am here for you
trying to show i care
...maybe care too much...
how...
how can my love
joined with the love of
so many others
for you
not keep the pain
at bay
for even a little while
?

i don't understand...


how i can hold you
try to bring some warmth back
into your cold, shivering self
but when i leave
you feel
more alone
than ever...

but one thing i do understand...

while i can give you some
warmth
love
unconditionally...




i cant fix things





only He can



and...

You can.






yes, You...beautiful strong one...


you don't believe me
you look up in despair
saying you're too tired
too alone
too cold


but i say again
i believe in you
because i really really do


you are a pillar
strong
powerful
bright
light
but you don't see it



look
look
please look
here, here's a mirror...
just look
there? don't you see?
this is how everyone else sees you...



you, strong girl...
you can do it
we can help support
hold onto your hand
give you guidance
encouragement
advice
love...


but...
really
it's
up
to
You.


it's your battle
your fight
you were given it
so you can triumph over it



and you can...


we can help
but we can't do it for you

you can do it


i believe in you...



and...



my love for you is
boundless...


i'm here
until you don't need me anymore
but keep repeating to yourself
keep saying over and over in your head
i can do it
i am strong
i'll get out of this


because You will


and when you finally get out
of that seemingly endless pit
reach that point where
you can pull yourself
out
over the edge
i will be here
to grab hold of your wrists
and hold on to you
for dear
life


and hold you as long as i can


for now...
just
keep remembering
and hoping
and dreaming


because you can do it
you can
i believe in you
we all do
that you can do this
get through this


i love you


You are

amazing...

Sometimes a person is just unable to see those helping hands reaching out... unable to accept the love... and there's nothing you can do except pray that they'll be ready soon.

from the other point of view

Ezzie said...

;'(

The Dreamer said...

wow.

i've already shared it with someone...

the apple said...

Wow.

No other words necessary.

Scraps said...

I hope your friend gets the message. So powerful...wow.

(But you'd better be looking in that mirror, too!)

halfshared said...

Wow this is great. I hope you don't mind if I save it and use it when needed. This friend or sister, is very lucky to have you and I hope they know it.

AT PEACE said...

WOW!!!

I'm saving it too : )

Bas--
Good point. She sees them, though. She wants to accept the help, but she...can't reach it...And you're right--there's not much we can do until that day comes when she will be able to get herself out...

Will you ever finish that poem? I'd love to see the end of it...

David--
A very special person in my life.
She did already. In fact, one of the main reasons why I posted it here is so that she can read it...as many times as she needs to...

Ezzie--
...yes...

Dreamer--
Good...I wrote it for someone in particular, but in a way also for all those people out there who need to hear the same thing.
...Like myself sometimes...

Apple--
Then none more need be said :)

Scraps--
She definitely read it, but I think it'll take some time until the message sinks in...

...Maybe you can hold up that mirror for me...

Half--
It's my pleasure; you can keep it forever and show it to whomever you feel needs to hear it...

Yes...I hope she does realize...but I think she does...

Peace--
Please do! :)
