for daniel

when you dream
about your death
and you say
that no one will grieve

don't speak for me

when you believe
that killing yourself
is better for everyone
and no one will care

don't think for me

when you feel
that ending your life
is saving the world
from your horribleness

don't feel for me

you are good
you are worthy
of all good things

you are noticed
you are a presence
in this world

you are needed
you are helpful
even when
you don't know it

know this
as true

there is someone
who'll grieve
and rue the day
they never told you
that they cared

don't fade away
