Helpless

I see you struggling,

I have no idea what to do.

How can I be so helpless

When I've been through this too?

I remember feeling scared,

And so lonely I could scream;

But I was stuck behind a smile

Wishing it was a dream.

I hid so no one would know

That anything could break me,

For if my secret was discovered

How embarrassing would that be?

But I needed someone's help

And how could they know it?

It would have been impossible

If I didn't choose to show it.

So please let me in,

Let me see behind your smile;

And we will get through it together,

Things will be better in just a while.
