Changing Your Mind

by FaithfulDreamer   Jul 7, 2011

Every time you put yourself down
I promise I'll be next to you
To build you back up
Every time you let yourself fall
I promise I'll be behind you
To catch you before you go too far
Every time you say you're ugly
I promise I'll disagree
And tell you all the beauty I see in you
Every time you cry
I promise I'll hold your hand
Until your tears dry up and you smile again
Every time you want to end it all
I promise I'll be there
To remind you why you've held on for so long

I'll tell you how I'm jealous of how fearless you are
Of the way you dance crazily and don't care who sees
I'll tell you how beautiful you look every day
With your pretty face and curly brown hair
And your eyes, they're gorgeous
I'll tell you how much I love being with you
How much you make me laugh
And how much you've helped ME pull through
I'll tell you how strong you are
With everything you've survived already
This is nothing, you can make it
I'll tell you that you're perfect just as you are
You're not fat, you're not hopeless
You're perfect
I'll tell you that I'm lucky to have you
No one else suffers through all my stories,
No one except you
I'll tell you that there's someone out there for you
And that he'll see you like you I do
He'll never hurt you, never make you cry

I'll remind you of all the fun times we've had
How we would sit in the back of class
And laugh at the antics of our teachers
Their strangeness, their dark humor, but mostly
Their snazzy pants.
I'll remind you of how we've never spent a day without talking
Of how we'll always have each other
Even if everyone else decides to leave
I'll make you smile again,
But I won't stop there
I won't let you keep beating yourself up
I'll help you push through anything and everything
Until you've changed your mind.

Nicole, this is for you. You're one of my best friends and I'm so lucky to have you. Lucky isn't even a strong enough word. I miss you so much and I wish we could be together everyday, like we used to be. I love you so much, and it hurts me a lot when you think so low of yourself. I mean everything I said in this poem, and if you ever need anything, tell me:) please. Thanks for everything,
