About the Poem

I wrote this about my therapist. She has changed my life so greatly, that I do not know where I'd be today without her.

Thank You

You took me in under your wings
When I was too scared to fly
You told me that I had to live
When all I wanted was to die

You saw the fear and sadness I had
By only the sound of my voice
You said I didn't have to talk-
You were the first to give me that choice

You told me just to take my time
We'll always have next week
There were many, many times
When you'd just let me weep

You somehow made me smile, though
Through my pain and all the tears
You told me all about my life
And what happened in those years

To my surprise you were right
You already knew me so well
So I decided to stick with you
"I like her already, I can tell. "

You opened my heart very slow
And took a look inside
Then you found the part of me
That I wanted so badly to hide

But you didn't laugh, nor did you leave
You didn't say I was wrong
You told me that I'd be fine -
Something I'd needed so long

Then I realized something was wrong
When I sat there all those days
Then I finally figured it out
It was something I didn't say

Thank you was all that I could get out
Though I wanted to say much more
You have taught me of life and love
And that I have something to live for.
