Here For You

The past you cannot forget or undo,
The future is all we can look forward to.

I wish I could have been there by your side...
For all the times you've wept and cried.

Know from my heart, what I say is true...
That I hurt for the pain you have been through.

Never alone shall you be,
Someday, freedom you will see

May your hopes and dreams come true,
No matter where you are, I'll always be here for you.

Dedicated to Stacey

I am inspired by this poem because I am missing a really good caring friend tonight. He was the best from the men I found on my life journey. He cried with me during my hardest time. He shared fun with me when I was happy. His memory remains fresh in my heart for ever because he is my soul friend. Follow your dreams and fly to the sky my friend. This is what I can do for you, wipe my tears.

I have a friend who has just confided in me about that happened to her while she was growing up. She was made to believe that it was all her fault and that she asked for what happened to her. How can grown-ups be so evil to children? I was unable to be there for my friend as she was growing up. But, I am here for her now and I will always be here for her to make sure that she will always feel safe. The past is the past and nothing can be done to change it. But, the future is something that we can change and make into whatever we want it to be.
