I dreamed to be a poet some day!

When I am really broken on the inside
I reach for my pen to heal my scars
My only beloved and my best friend!

How much I turn to you my pen?
Cause you’re the only one
Who knows me deeply from within!

And when I was only ten
You were patient with my childish dreams
Like dreaming of becoming a beautiful queen!

And when I turned eighteen
I am holding on you and I’m still so keen
For you’re the truest friend I’ve ever seen!

When all the other people just don’t care
You were beside and you were there
My most special thoughts with you I share!

I turn to you when I’m so weak
For you’re the one who understands me
When I really feel like I can’t speak!

I turn to you when no one is on my side
You know my every secret
For with you there is nothing to hide!

Cause I know my secrets you won’t reveal
You change my feelings into words
For you know what exactly I feel!

I dreamed to be a poet some day
And on this moment I want to thank you
For you let others, call me a poet today!

  2. This poem really spoke to me, especially the part about your pen turning feelings into words. I’ve never been very good at saying how I feel. When I spoke with my first psychologist when I suffered from depression, I used to write a poem for each of our sessions instead of explaining how I felt through words because expressing emotions through poetry was much easier for me.
