You Were There - Poem by Kerrie Maurer

When i needed help
You were there
When i needed to cry
You were there
When troubles came
You were there
When i needed a friend
You were there
When life got in the way
You were there
Time and time again
Problem after problem
Tear after tear
Fall after fall
You were there
When no one else was
When no one else could
When no one else would
You were there
Everyday was new
Everyday was better
Each day felt safer
Each day was lived
Because you were there
Today your gone
Today your far
Today is silent
As for years its been
Ive grown
Ive cried
Ive fallen
Ive risen
Battles are won
More than they are lost
I can catch my grip
And cherish each day
Because you were there
A moment changed my life
A sentence kept me strong
A thought will keep me whole
I see the better
And keep up the fight
To strive and survive
Because you were there
