If you feel suicidal, I'm sorry.
I hope you get the help you deserve;
I do care.
I want to try to do as much as I can to help, but I'm not perfect,
If I don't notice,
Sometimes I notice that you're depressed but I don't know what to do;
Sometimes I notice you're depressed when I'm also depressed, and I don't have the emotional energy to do much more than just keep myself functioning;
Sometimes I can relate to you and your pain;
I'm sorry that you're going through this.
Sometimes I can't relate to your pain;
I'm just as sorry that you're going through this.
Sometimes I say the wrong thing;
Sometimes I can only look on helplessly, giving you the half-smile-half-grimace of sympathy like this :-/ ;
When you're feeling sad, or hopeless, or lost,
I really am sorry.
I do want to try to help,
But I don't always know;
I don't always know the perfect thing to do;
I don't always know what will make you better.
But please know that I care.
I appreciate you, and
My life would be emptier without you.
