Tears From Afar…



I see your heart bleed

I can’t make it quit

Not able to reach you

Lacking power, I sit

You are hurting

I watch your anguish grow  

Tears I cry in abundance, for you

But you will never know…


Never know this stranger cares

From so far away

Never know my prayers for you

Or how my heart aches

Such agony in your eyes

I am witness to your desperation

The strength it must take

Your immense determination


You are a survivor

Tragedy didn’t tear you completely down

I marvel that you are standing

Shaken, but both feet on the ground


If I could offer comfort

Even for one moment

If I could halt the bleeding

With loves tourniquet

If I could lift your burden

Help you carry the weight

If I could help lead you to healing

And chase your pain away

I would offer to you what I have to give

Guided by God’s power and love

Yet I am here… so far away

Wishing my tears were enough…
