Overcast(a plea)

I'm always down, you say
It seems you've failed your mission
To bring me happieness
To bring me to life
I am a walking stoic
With a heart of stone
My soul a barren wasteland
Better if left alone
There's nothing you can do, you say
To brighten up my life
You feel helpless, useless
Like nothing you say or do
Will ever bring forth pleasure
from this wretched soul of mine
But obviously you don't or refuse to see
Just how much you've rectified me
I was in complete darkness
You became my candle
I was in absolute chaos
You became my serenity
Now this candle is burning out
My serenity is dissipating
And what can I do
But sit by and watch
As my life once again crumbles
Into the choking fog
I try to keep you wanting
I try to keep you steady
But what else can I do
that I haven't done already
You think you are nothing
No help, no release at all
But I'm pleading with you
You must know this
If anything else
You're the one thats helped me
The very most of all
So don't give up just yet
I'm down deep but I see a light
It's hard for me to reach
I need your shoulders to stand on
And soon I will pull myself out
If you would only help
Don't leave me down here alone
Don't walk away from me
I'll get better, I promise
Please, just stay with me here
I really need the company
Thank you for all you've done
Although you think it's not enough
It's more than what anyone has attempted to do
It's more than I expected from you
And I appreciate the boost
I just hope you don't give in
I need you still
Help me find myself
I got lost along the way
I know you know I'm hiding
So I'm begging you to stay
Just call out my name
Offer me that strong shoulder to lean on
And when you have fallen
When you are in the depths as I
I will be there with you
With a smile on my face
And words of encouragement
And a warm hug just for you
If you will just allow me
To crawl out of this pit
I can promise you that
I will never forget
All that you've done for me
In all my neccessity
And I will return the gesture
Without any lecture.
I'm greatful for you
And the soul you possess
Just be patient with me
And I'll take care of the rest.

One thing about overcast skies, they are never there to stay, when those clouds finally go sailing on the breezes, the sun comes out shining a little bit brighter and the air smelling a little bit cleaner. Hugs to you..

This must be one lucky guy.  Maybe he didn't realize that he really means this much to you.  Maybe this guy has problems of his own as well.  Maybe both of you are having problems communicating.  Beautiful work.  I like it alot.  Makes me wonder how I can make things between us better.  I love you.
