I will follow you.

I will follow you
Through the chaos
And the confusion.
When I can't sleep,
I will listen.
When I don't understand,
I will cry out
And wait for you.
When I am in pain,
I will stop holding on,
And just be held.
When tears fall from
My cheeks,
I will let you dry them.
When the world gets
Too much, and I can't
Hold on,
I will fall into you.
And when I can't trust
Another human being,
I will trust you.

I will follow you.
I will follow you.
Hold out your hand,
And I will follow you.
Very very lost.
Look at the other families
Playing and gathering around.
Except for mine.
I just want someone to look
At me and say

Written by my incredibly creative eight year old daughter. Needless to say, it brought tears to my eyes. She's more like me than I ever wanted her to be.
I wish I could write a poem
About all the pain in her face.

But even I can't find the words to
Describe her sadness.

Nothing in life seems to last very long.
I have no staying power.
I'm delusional at best, thinking I have
The answers to the questions that haven't
Been asked yet.

But I have nothing.
And I will end up with nothing,
Despite the desires in my heart.

I wish I had no desires at all.
