Her Downward Slide

She walks an unwanted path,
through the past and its aftermath.
She sees no way to get ahead,
going where life has always led.

Her thoughts confuse her road,
depression weighing on her load.
Her love is stronger than I deserve,
all I want is to live my life to serve.

She sees darkness where my light should shine,
and knows not how my love can make her fine.
She feels the pain of what she needed,
and loses sight of our new love that’s seeded.

Her truth reveals much that could be,
but the fog refuses to lift from her reality.
Her future days should be at my side,
where I can help her stop her downward slide.

My love is full and very real,
she is my all and knows how I feel.
