Dear fighter
You are seen. You are loved.
You aren’t alone, but known from above.
Your struggle is real, but you are here

I see you. I love you.
Drop the pills, release the knife 
Don’t kill yourself, don’t take your life!
You belong in this story
Not erased from history

Dear survivor
I know the pain, I know the guilt
The thought of ending it all, and how it felt
But you matter, 
You make today better

The struggles will come, and you will fight
You know how to fight the darkness of the night
Put a semicolon where that period should’ve been
Your story doesn’t have to end.

Dear warrior
You have survived
You know how to fight
You have battled the terrors of the night

Pass the baton, continue the race
Weather the storms other people face
Take your scars, share them proud
Be the lifeline that you have found.
