there is nothing worse then

when someone you love is hurting

and you are powerless to take their pain away

when the sun stays hidden behind the clouds

and the whole world lies in darkness

when life is just painfully cruel and unfair

and well meaning words fall short

at those times

all I can do is take you in my arms

and hold you,

my dearest one

all I can do is show you

the world may be heartless

but you need not bear it alone
