A TORTURED CONFIDANT

If I was to die today,

Would you remember me,

Or would I be forgotten,

Do you have room for my memory.


I've touched a lot of people,

As a light in the dark,

Trying to guide their way,

Through times cold and stark.


Jaded by a most painful past,

Forced to suffer alone,

I could not stand aside,

To let another heart turn to stone.


Though one voice among many others,

I whisper in the crowd,

Endeavoring to bring you hope,

To lift your painful shroud.


I care not for fame or fortune,

I'm just a simple tortured soul,

Intimate with pain and strife,

Wishing to keep you whole.


Shattered beyond what I was,

Remolded to what I've become,

Striving to help all others,

Before they give up and succumb.


I might not know you well,

Or even not at all,

I love you just the same,

I will not let you fall.


If I was to die today,

Would you remember me,

Or would I be forgotten,

Faded like fog from your memory.
