You

You reminded me that I’m not alone,
While believing that no one shared your pain.
You lifted my spirits,
When yours were low.
You showed me that I was loved,
But you thought you were unlovable.
You are why I am still here,
I want you to believe all the things that you made me see.


Prompted word was “You”.
Requester was my HappyGramps
Request method was TikTok.

Author notes: HappyGramps probably intended me to write a poem about “me”, but all of my poems are about me in some way, so I stuck to the literal sense of what I said I would write about, “take that word or concept and think about what it means to me”. So I took “you” and crafted a poem about what “you” means to me. And it became the plural and singular all at once and I mean the you that is reading this poem.
