Courage - The Other Side Of Depression



You have walked this dark road with me more times than
we both want to remember;
No-one knows my soul, my thoughts and every beat of my
heart like you do.

You have never left my side even in the worse times when
I struggled with depression you stayed.
Seeing me go deeper into that dark place
The pain in your eyes and the nights I heard
you silently cry.

Standing helplessly by as you slowly see the life slip
away from me;
and everyday I retreat deeper into the darkness.

You pleaded with me to please come back to you -
Somehow we always managed to find a way back
from the darkness.

My own struggles with depression and my pain
You made it your own
You choose to stay and fight this battle with me

You have never given up on me, even when I gave
up on myself.
You have more insight and understanding with people
who suffers from depression than even people who
suffers from it has.

The other side of depression is the people who loves us
they struggle with us;
but we are so consumed with our own depression we 
never seem to notice how much they are hurting too.
