Not Alone

Not Alone

A Poem by A.Lee

How long will you drift on in sadness

Never seeing that I'm here?

How long will you cry out in pain

When I've been there to dry your tears?

You're terrified to take a step

Although I clear the path before you

So afraid to come to harm

Although I said I'd see you through

I've held your hand on the darkest days

When you were cold, you felt my embrace

I'm here to keep you safe and sound

To keep your feet firm on the ground

How long before you realize

What I would give to see those eyes

Light up in peace and happiness

No longer dimmed by all the stress

No matter what you're going through

I'm always here to comfort you

My love for you will not subside

No matter what you feel inside

This is a good poem. I really liked it and I thought you did a good job on it. I can feel that the person you want to help isn't letting you help them. When they know you will always be there. It's sweet that you will be there through everything. Thanks for sharing.

What a tender commitment you share, even though so often another is blind to the love.. and strength.. the comfort of one reaching out. You give this a beautiful depth and make one hope that his eyes would open... soon...

Beautiful piece- great rhyme scheme. I would recommend adding in some more punctuation in this piece, but otherwise, excellent job. c:

very tender and empathetic, was this for one of your children? it reminds me of how i feel about my daughter, and of course my wife when she is depressed, but she takes my hand, I think our children need to be pushed to take our help sometimes.
nice poem

I really love this poem. It is almost like a conveyance of unconditional love for a good friend, or someone with whom you have affections for. I can truly relate!

A feeling I've been all to familiar with. It's a painful situation, yet somehow pleasing to know that the person you long for will always care for you and consider you incredibly important even though you're not "theirs".

Reminds me of my piece "Legs Lips Sex and Jazz".

I am lots of things, but here you'd identify most with the writer and avid reader. I have three beautiful children. The oldest boy, Seth, passed last year after fighting a long battle with cancer. .. more..
