Scintilla Project: You Rescued Me

Prompt:  No one does it alone. Write a letter to your rescuer or mentor (be it a person, book, film, record, anything). Share the way they lit up your path.

through the doctor visits and surgeries
you were there for me

when I didn't understand
you explained it to me

when no one else understood
you got me

when I was scared and confused
you comforted me

when I couldn't help myself
you cared for me

through the good times and the bad
you supported me

when I was in so much pain I wanted to die
you rescued me

Linking up with the Scintilla Project
