This is a poem for Lauren, a friend who is so special to me... its hard to put into words.

Laur, I wrote this to show you you're not alone, okay?

I Am Here

When the worlds turns its back on you

I am here

When the ones you love hurt you

I am here

-x-

Take my hand my friend

Let me lead you out of the darkness

Let me give you hope

Let me make you smile

Let me take away your fears

Let me help you forget your troubles

-x-

I might not see you face to face

I might not hear your voice personally

But, my friend,

-x-

I am here for you.
