As I stood and watched you walk away, my mouth held in the words that you needed to hear.
I couldn’t bring myself to say them.
Maybe because they would be lost in the wind, or maybe among the people placed between us.
Could it be that you can’t hear them anymore? The words that are meant to lift up.
You are so far down in the cave of negativity, rejected from all the things you ever wanted.
How are you still here?
So much darkness and yet you hold your small candle still, lighting the way.
You stay on the path before you and you’ve never allowed the obstacles to trip you.
You are a friend. An amazing person who has gone through so much and yet is still here fighting.
You are fighting for love, and God, and hope, and I will forever admire you for who you are right now.
