Depression Poem for a Friend

I’m Here For You

I know words won’t take away your pain.
But I’m here for you.

When you feel like no one cares, I do.
I’m here for you.

When others judge, or criticize, or roll their eyes, I won’t.
I’m here for you.

If it’s 3am and you don’t want to burden anyone, call me.
I’m here for you.

If it seems so dark and the walls are closing in, I’ll be your light and guide you.
I’m here for you.

If you feel like no one understands, I do. I’ve been there.
And I’m here for you.

When you can think of nothing good to say about yourself, I have a long list of good I see in you,
right here for you.

When you can think of no reason to go on, I will be your reason.
I need to be here for you.

When you are upset for no reason, you don’t need to give me a reason
to be here for you.

When you don’t want advice or a lecture, and you just need someone to sit with you,
I’ll sit here with you.

When you feel like you have failed, you haven’t.
You were here for me.
Now I’m here for you.

  1. Hi Amie,
    Thank you for sharing this poem! It’s beautiful. My boyfriend lives with clinical depression and this is perfect.

  2. I absolutely love this. My boyfriend is having a lot of trouble in life with his parents getting a divorce and he calls me for hours on end sometimes crying. I just showed him this and I’m hoping he likes it. Thank you so much!!

  3. thank you so much. so many people just don’t understand and frankly don’t want to understand. I am so happy to have a place where people accept me for who I am and celebrate that fact.
