I saw your tears, I heard you cry,
I know you're hurting,
tell me why?
How did it hurt, tell me now;
perhaps I can ease your pain somehow
Your face hidden under a wide-brimmed hat,
feeling a need to hide
because of the pain shredding you inside.
Torn as if by the claws of the cat,
I know of this pain;
been there done that,
learned it, lived it, known it.
But even so
it never does go,
it only remains;
twisting its knives
renewing the pain.
It's just too much, I feel so drained,
wishing for that final call,
I look around and see this is all that remains.
One can't escape the curse of pain.
Escape comes only at the end,
knowing I was at least someone's
Let me ease your burdens
when I hear your heart's call,
I will be there to catch you when you fall.
As voices from heavenly choirs above
sing a song of healing and love.
