Place your burdens on my shoulders,
I will help you carry the load.
When it feels like the clocks have arthritis,
I will help you fill the time.
When thoughts are hard to articulate,
I will speak for the both of us.
When your bed holds you captive,
I will be it’s hostage too.
When you’re drained of power, running at 10%,
I will be the 90% you need to boost you back up.
When your legs refuse to move,
I will be your crutch, lean on me.
When everything becomes to much,
I will be you’re resting place.
When the noise becomes to deafening,
Look for me ; I will lead you to your safe haven.
Undress your worries,
I will wear them as my own.
Take off the mask you always wear,
For I see beneath the facade.
When it has hold of your throat leaving you breathless,
I will breathe new life into your lungs.
When you feel alone in a world full of people,
Look to your left for I have never left you.
I may not be able to take it away,
But I won’t let it consume you either.
Alone you suffer,
Together we manage.
