Thank You For Standing By Me

Original Poetry

It takes such bravery
To love someone
Who suffers from the
Most destructive form
Of mental illness.
To relentlessly
Stand by their side
When their mind is
At war with itself
Takes the most courage
A person can hold
Within themselves.
The mood swings,
The paranoia,
The questions,
The breakdowns.
It’s a horrendous life
To live,
But even worse
For those on the outside.
You are not invisible
To us.
You are
Our lifesavers.
Without you,
Our lives would not be
As bearable
As you make it.
Thank you.
