There is this person I know
Their life has been so heavy
All the things they have endured no one ever should.
Life seems unfair to them
Their hurt has been so great
But as the pages turn for them redemption lingers near.
Maybe it's unknown to them
But their strength is to be coveted
The burdens they have handled are far more than a lifetime.
As pain courses through them
Their heart a broken mosaic
Alone in a sterile place wishing someone else was there.
I can not be that someone
Truly that rite is not mine
But deep within my soul I break down and cry.
I wish my prayers meant freedom
I pray my wish to be true
Right now I send my God to hold on to you.
