Pain is hard to deal with in every circumstance. Your pain hurts my very core. No flirting fancy in romance. But distance in its ferocity has stolen my capability of eliminating your melancholy. But even in its vastness, I can still feel your throbbing agony. All I want to do is put my arms around you. Hold you tight and with my might try to make your plight lighter. I know neither your grief I can take nor the incident can I erase. But I want to be there to wipe your tears and ease your fears and use my words like comfort shears.
Misery like fire burning through you
One of life’s many ills
And all I wonder
Is there really a cure?
No one cause can be named
Loss to confusion and despair
All may be the trigger and result
Are you defeated?
Darkness that surrounds you
Whispers of wishes untold choke you
All the opportunities and paths he may have walked past
Scream as your heart betrays you
Some many question torment you
Of events you cannot change
And the misery cements you
In grief you cannot exchange
I feel so helpless in this period when you need me the most. I want to be there for you. No answers do I hold. Nor can I send forth your words untold. I will not let the distance stop me, from trying to make you feel better. I just pray for the Holy Spirit to hold you close with comfort and I wait for you to speak knowing I’m here to listen.
