You’re Never Alone

December 12, 2010

Why, as the world spins, do I stand?You are never alone
Still as the leaves, when there is no wind,
Why does it hurt so much?
When everything you believe in, feels right,
Why am I falling?

When everything around me is rising with the sun,
Why look for pain?
When there is none,
Is heaven a place on Earth?
Or does it come from the heart,
Every breath I take, is another fire, burning up inside,
I know that sometimes the truth hurts, but don’t ever let it slide.

Am I the only one, who takes pride in the little things?
The colour of the sky at dawn,
The feeling, knowing you’ve got something to give,
Even though they spit in your fire,
The freedom to run the waves, whenever the time is right,
The joy, of taking pride in who you are,
Even though they try and scar,
The flame of the candle, dancing in the window pane,
You are fulfilled; you have nothing more to gain.
Is there another part of me?
A part I do not know,
Whatever the future holds, I cannot tell yet,
But I can now see the glow,
A shimmer of light,
A glimmer of hope,
In everything I do.

Feel every moment you live,
For you do not know,
When the sun will stop rising,
Become who you were born to be,
For everyone is here for a reason,
Discover the meaning of life,
You will know when you’ve found it,
The warm heart, and sound of tiny toes,
Pitt-pattering on the floor,
The sound of giggling and laughter,
Where there was none before.

Feel love, when you give,
Not only when you get,
I ask for one thing,
Don’t leave this world yet,
You have many more things to discover,
The light is upon you,
And remember…
You’re never alone.

    Thank you soo much its turning out well and yeah I’ll make sure to say your name and who really wrote it!! Once again thank you so much!!

  • Jason November 14, 2011 at 6:30 pm

    How did you think of this poem? It sounds just like my friend’s that she wrote last year. :/

  • Sonia Perkin November 17, 2011 at 3:45 am

    … Hi Jason 🙂
    It does sound strange how you say that your friends poem is similar, and my answer is maybe she went through the same life experiences as me 🙂
    It’s hard to answer the question of how I thought about it, but basically this poem was actually produced in 2007, I wrote it when I was 15, at the time when my life was at its worst. Only recently did I decide to try and get it on the internet so I could give people hope that have been, or are in the same situation. I had been upset and had family problems, and as I was always taught by my mother to write my feelings down to express myself if no one would listen, I managed to find a happy place in myself, and wrote it from the heart. My poem is about not giving up and finding the happiness and peace within yourself to carry on 🙂
    Hope this has answered any questions or queries you may have had.

    If your friend wants to get in touch I would love to read her poem, and take on life 🙂

  • Kam December 21, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    May I make your song into a song?

  • Sonia Perkin December 26, 2011 at 10:17 am

    … Hi Kam, I presume you meant poem into a song, anyway yes you can though I’d like to ask you to only use pieces of it, not the whole thing 🙂 Thanks.

  • jenn March 29, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    • Praveen March 29, 2012 at 11:10 pm

  • Sonia Perkin March 30, 2012 at 8:30 am

    … Thank you Jenn, it means a lot 🙂

  • Mike April 12, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    This poem hits the spot! Would you be mad if I used it for an obituary (My Uncle’s)? Will fully accredit your name.

  • Sonia Perkin April 19, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    … Hello Mike, thank you so much, it means a lot. No, I wouldn’t mind at all as long as my name’s accredited, I would be honoured 🙂
