Dear Stranger,

I hope your day was well. I also hope you see tomorrow in a brighter light. Every day deserves to be seen in a brighter light than the day before. I hope you fall asleep and wake up with a smile on your face. I know that is wishful thinking; nobody ever truly wishes to get out of bed.

Dear Stranger,

I hope someone has told you that heartache is one of those stupid necessities of life and has given you a shoulder to lean on when you needed one. It amazes me how comforting one of the boniest parts of the body can truly be.

Dear Stranger,

I hope you realize or will realize that life doesn’t have to be fair to be wonderful. People will be taken from you. People will leave you behind. Other people will excel in places you will not. Terrible things will happen that you will not be able to fix.

That does not mean that the warmth that surrounds you when you hug someone who cares is insignificant. That does not mean that those butterflies creeping in towards your belly when you catch the smile of a pretty girl or boy aren’t worth chasing. That doesn’t mean that when you stand facing the ocean with the tide rolling in, kissing your toes and ankles, that you should feel insignificant in the grand scheme of things. You should know those things you feel are here to help you feel alive. So soak in everything they have to offer and if you can sincerely, pass them on.
I've seen so much heartache and sadness on this website and I wanted to reach out with a little kindess. So this is for you, all of you. To you, I wish nothing but the best.

I know this isn't necessarily a poem, but I hope it has the same effect even though it may be a little more direct.
