About the Poem

This poem seems to speak well for itself, so there isn't much I can say, simply that it's written for a very close friend who has had a rough ride in matters concerning love.

Incidentally, it also draws attention to the advantages of being a good friend, namely that you can share in the joyous times as well as the sad.

Don't Worry - I'll Help

I will support you
when days do seem dark,
when you feel that you can't
stop the pain in your heart.
I will be there for you
and I'll hold your hand,
together we'll make it
out of this Shadowland.

Never forget that I
think of you often
wondering how you are
and if you've forgotten;
or if you are crying
alone with your pain,
thinking it's hopeless
and that you are to blame.

I hope that you aren't
because it isn't your fault,
you've just become victim
to the bad side of love.
It happens to most people
some time in their life
and it hurts a great deal,
worse than a knife.

But I will console you
and help you to see
that although things seem awful,
one day you'll be free;
free from the heartache
to go on with your life,
and I'll be there to see it,
and secretly smile.

This poem has now become one of my favorites. It says so much, it tells the person..I'll help you, I'll be there for you..Perhaps at times we've wanted to say such words, but found it hard. Try sending this poem. I've sent it to some of my friends. If nothing else, I think you'll get a smile and/or a thank you. *Thank you for writing this poem*

I feel this was a great poem because it shows the writer is very involved in thier friends life and they want to help in any way they can. It sounds like someone really cares. I whis I could find a friend like that.
