And There Was You - Poem by Twilight Whispers

There was once a girl, she was like me
She cried when she was sad
She smiled when she was happy
And shouted when she was mad.

She was no different to me
She was quiet and kind
She tried her best with everything
And friendly, you'll find.

But then came you, and she saw
That she was in some trouble
All her worries seemed so much worse
And her fears seemed to double.

You couldn't help her, although you tried
I've heard the things you've spoken
And if you see her, right there now,
You'll see how much she's broken.

So can't you just, for a little while,
Give my friend some space?
Leave her be, and you will see
A smile spread across her face.
