“When you can’t look on the bright side, I will sit with you in the dark.”
I must explain myself.
I was so moved by this quote from an unknown author. The sentiment, the sheer emotion of it, sends me reeling. I am no stranger to depression and anxiety, both in myself and in my family. I have known many friends for whom the daily struggle in evident.
It is my hope that these words, these images, offer some sort of salve, just a little bit of comfort. Even for just today.
How much I wish I could tell you
How much I care for you
How I wish I could be there…right…next…to you, holding you in the dark
When you can’t see the light
I will be there
When you can’t hold on to sunshine
I will soften the night
And here…with you
You with me
We will brave the day…until the air is cool and calm
If you can’t feel your heartbeat
I will hold you tight
If your pain overwhelms you
I will make you laugh
I am here with you
For you…in every troublesome moment
For your comfort…and for love
