This is For the Girls

 

This is for the girls
That I couldn’t reach
When no matter how I tried
I couldn’t cross the breach.

This is for the girls
Every one I’ve known
That fell asleep at night
Feeling all alone.

This is for the girls
Who feel lonely and depressed
But somehow I wasn’t there
To help them know they’re blessed.

This is for the girls
That I have never told
I want to help them out
And they have my hand to hold.

This is for the girls
Who thought I wouldn’t care
Who thought I never noticed
That they were there.

This is for the girls
Too scared or just too shy
To tell me of their problems
And let me sympathize.

This is for the girls
Who’d die before they’d tell
Who hold it all inside them
And fake that all is well.

This is for those girls
Because I understand
I know what it feels like
When you can hardly stand.

This is for those girls
Cause I want another chance
I feel like I have failed you
In this circumstance.

This is for those girls
You know who you are
I know we need each other
That’s why I’ve gone this far.

I wrote this poem two years ago. Two days ago I got a message from one girl who hasn’t spoken to me in a long time, thanking me for something I did for her years ago. That 100% made my day. I love her so much. Because of her, I am encouraged to move on, to keep reaching out others. God is still at work.
