For Ben.

"Depression is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign that you have been trying to be strong for too long. Put this as your status if you know someone who has or has had depression. Will you do it, and leave it on your status for at least an hour ? Most people won't, but it's mental health week and 1 in 3 of us will suffer at some point in our lives. Show your support. I copied and pasted, will you ?"
This was the inspiration, something I spotted and kept for two friends of mine.
This is addre


If you need me I'm here, but I know that you won't

Even call or speak up, and it's not like you don't

Know I care, cause I do, it's just how to express it

And to see you like this just makes me feel pathetic I

Can't work out how you have strength to go on and,

Well, you know that you're pretty much gone

On the inside but outside you're still such a trooper and

This is me taking my hat off to you sir, but

What I really mean is, well if I could say it, 

I wanna fix you but I don't know how to display it

Without doing it wrong, and the last thing you need is

Another face who'll just refuse to concede that

They can't understand what they haven't been through,

They'll pull faces and sigh and feel sorry for you

So I'll tiptoe around and I'll give you some space

Because try as I might I'm just one more damn face,

But if you need me I'm here, my face and my voice

And my heart and my love - but I'll leave you the choice.

The End
