“Don’t Reach For The Bottle And Don’t Pull The Plug” – A Poem: Someone Out There Really Cares

In the last post, What To Do When You Feel Alone, I spoke about 3 ways to get someone on your side. While recording the video, I thought of a song I had composed for my friend when she was going through a rough time. And although I don’t feel comfortable singing it for the public, I’m happy to share the verses here.

Lyrics:

 

When you’re feeling sad, alone, and depressed

When life gets so hard and it’s hard to move on

When all is a battle you know you must lose

And you wish you could stop the pain and abuse

 

When the road is too rocky and you can’t see the way

And you think you can’t make it through one more day

When the whole world is dark and you’re too sad to care

Don’t give up; don’t despair

 

Don’t reach for the bottle and don’t pull the plug

Don’t ever let go and don’t give up

Cuz there’s someone out there who really cares

Someone who loves you too much

 

DON’T REACH FOR THE BOTTLE AND DON’T PULL THE PLUG

DON’T EVER LET GO AND DON’T GIVE UP

CUZ THERE’S SOMEONE OUT THERE WHO REALLY CARES

SOMEONE WHO LOVES YOU TOO MUCH

 

My Friend Didn’t Pull The Plug

 

Thank God, my friend didn’t let go and she’s living a most wonderful life of her choice now.

 

I’d love to hear what choices YOU’RE making and how you’re coping with the pain. Comment below!
