Just Like You: A Poem

Just Like You: A Poem

JUST LIKE YOU

by Hillary Thornock, RN

Sit beside me I beg you

The voices I hear can’t harm you

Smile for me I beg you

My eyes are glazed but still see you

Cry with me I beg you

My tears are no different than yours

 

I once was a child with dreams and hopes Just like you; just like you

I once had friends and family that loved me Just like you; just like you

I once embraced this world we all share Just like you; just like you

 

Listen to me I beg you

Hear my story that may inspire you

Walk beside me I beg you

My feet walk a path that may enlighten you

Sit and just be with me I beg you

My silence just might awaken you

 

I once was a child with hopes and dreams Just like you; just like you

I once had friends and family that loved me Just like you; just like you

I once embraced this world we all share Just like you; just like you

 

She sat beside me and smiled

She offered me time and understanding

He saw the tears in my eyes

He offered me silence and a hug

They walked beside my side

They offered me companionship

 

I am learning and have hopes and dreams

Just like you; just like you

I am a brother and son that has love and goodness Just like you; just like you

I embrace humanity in this world that we all share Just like you; just like you
