Here’s a song for you. I know sometimes you want to leave. To take a pill and fall out of life and into peace. Because you feel you don’t matter.
But here’s a song…for you to know how much I care about you.
Because you matter to me. Simple and plain and not much to ask of somebody. I promise you do.
“I could find the whole meaning of life in those sad eyes.They’ve seen things that you never quite say, but I hear“
Even when you laugh it seems like you are about to cry. Yet when those huge brown eyes look at me they look through me. I begin desperately looking for answers. Desperately scrambling to find ways to make this girl with the big beautiful eyes that have seen her scarred legs, and her tear filled blankets happy again. How do I make her happy?
Damara, your eyes say everything you can not. Your eyes are the scream I know you can’t let out. Your eyes speak a language I would love to understand completely but that I also love learning.
“It’s addictive the minute you let yourself think the things that I say just might matter to someone“
I remember all the things I’ve written to you and said to you and I wonder if you treasure them like you did the moment you read/heard them. I think about how even though I’m cheesy you always seem to appreciate what I say.
“And I wish that you could feel it. But you don’t choose to believe it cause I know that you can’t see it that way.”~Beautiful Like You by Lee DeWyze
More often times than not when I call someone beautiful they disagree and then point out all their flaws or things that they don’t like about themselves.
I never said that you’re flawless or that you don’t have insecurities. I said you were beautiful. When I tell you that you are beautiful I hope you know that I admire you not only for the things that I think are absolutely perfect about you but I also say it because I know about your flaws. I have flaws too…Believe me.
I wish you could look into the mirror and see all the great things that I see when I look at you. Even if it’s for a few seconds. I wish that you could believe me when I say “You’re beautiful”. I really do think so. I wish I could convince you. But I know I’ll probably never be able to. I wish I could show you how amazing you are to me because I know the mirror whispers awful things into your ears.
Stop negatively categorizing yourself or putting a label on what you see because I what I see is you and you are beautiful.
So if I could scream all of this to you I would. But I can’t so here I am telling the world that I think you are beautiful and leaving them to ask the question “who is this about?” It’s about you……..
“Cause it’s you, who takes care of everyone else. You, need to allow me to help, you Ohh, appreciated-Cause it’s you who somehow is always the first, to, take care of me at my worst. You are appreciated”~Appreciated by Rixton
I know to think that you aren’t. I know you think that people don’t care about you. But people do…I do. I can’t even express it. I hope you know that you are much more than a face in the crowd or an acquaintance. You are someone who I’ve been lucky enough to get to know.
I know that people always go to you for help. And you always help because you care. You can always see when other people are upset. You always lend your hand even if both of them are tied. And yet when your smile is a shield and, your laugh is a scream people don’t notice. But I’ll be here. As long as you want.
I know that I’m an awkward person that never knows what to say. But I want you to know that there is so much you do for people.
Thank you. Who knows where we’d be if we didn’t know of each other’s existence. I can’t believe how understanding you are. When I do something stupid you laugh. When I say something crazy you respond as if it’s totally normal.
I know that I’m crazy cheesy. But I hope the words you read from me help with the pain of your hardest days. I know how difficult it is to ask for help from someone or to talk to somebody. But you are never a bother. I always want to talk and I don’t care what it is we talk about.
I know how much you wish you could catch everybody as they fall. I know that you stretch yourself so far.
I hope you know how much you are worth. Even if it’s just for a few little moments.
