How Do We Encourage

How do we encourage someone else
When you feel so much that they feel
Knowing the struggle that they have
You want to help them mend and heal.

To be a friend and always give support
That is something that we can try to do
Trying to hide the pain we feel for them
Giving of time and love, maybe resources too.

We are all victims of our own stubborn self
You know they probably won’t ask for help aloud
It takes empathy, attention and maybe resolve
To get them to let you help because they’re proud.

While you have the time to share how you feel
Make sure they know that you care and are there
Don’t wait for the request, make yourself available
Knowing that above all, they feel you really care.

    I LOVE THIS ONE; I CAN FIT MYSELF RIGHT IN AS THOUGH THE WORDS ARE COMING FROM MYSELF; THERE ARE SO MANY TIMES I SWEAR YOU CAN READ MY MIND. JUST IN CASE YOU’VE FORGOTTEN I CARE AND AM ALWAYS HERE.
