I Care Enough

Untitled-2 - Copy

I care enough to stay.
I care enough to know that sometimes
You don’t mean what you say.
I care enough to know you.
I care enough to show you that
I will be right here.
I care enough to listen.
I care enough to encourage you
To not give up on things.
I care enough to stand tall.
I care enough to show you that
Life isn’t always hell.
I care enough to empathize.
I care enough to tell you that
I’ve been through shit too.
I care enough to be happy.
I care enough to try hard
And show you that happy is “okay”.
I care enough to help.
I care enough to research
For different ways to be there.
I care enough to be truthful.
I care enough to be a person,
And a real friend for you.
I care enough to love you.
I care enough to know your flaws
And still be there for you.
I care enough to know that
If you can’t stand the flaws
You shouldn’t be there at all.

I’m grateful that you trust me.
I’m grateful that you let me in
And can be yourself around me.
I’m grateful you accept me.
I’m grateful for the little signs
That let me know you care.
I’m grateful for our laughs.
I’m grateful that I make you
Actually happy sometimes.
I’m grateful we can talk.
I’m grateful we can go for hours,
And still have things to say.

I wish I could take away your pain.
I wish I could make your life easier,
Because I suffer seeing you sad.
I sometimes start to cry,
Just from thinking of the pain
That you always feel inside.
I wish I could be there.
I wish there was a way for me
To always be by your side.
I try so hard to listen more.
I try so hard to be a shoulder
That you can lean on.
I try to show you how I care.
I try to show you what I see.
I hope, so hard, that maybe one day
You’ll care for someone, just like me.
I wish that happiness could be
Thrown all over you.

I care enough to be there.
I care enough to tell you
That I will be right here.
