      Waking and wishing the day could just end
      feeling alone and lost once again
      depression it comes like a thief in the night
      taking the will to live and the will to fight

      Sleeping and laying bed for hours on end
      holding onto teddy, my faithful friend
      screaming inside as tears fall on the pillow
      deep into the darkness I begin to wallow.

      Night time and day time blend into one
      knowing this nightmare has just begun
      sadness prevails and all seems so stark
      no sun shinning and the world is dark

      Losing the will to fight day by day
      wanting someone to take the pain away
      memories render me helpless once again
      pouring my get up and go down the drain.

      Alone and afraid and believing life's over
      I bury my body under the cover
      I try to sleep but my mind won't stay still
      I lose the fight and accept I am ill

      The battle seems over, I feel it's the end
      but I didn't take into account my friend
      the one who stays with me, to help carry the pain
      accepts me as I am and removes the shame

      So little by little I take small steps
      like getting up and out of bed
      taking a bath and having something to eat
      together I know we can have this thing beat

      So just by knowing I am not alone
      with the love my friend has shown
      life can get better, I long for the day
      when depression has gone and happiness stays. ​

      That is really good Fiona :) I really enjoyed reading that. Anyone who has been in that situation will know that feeling and it is not a nice one at that.
