If I Could Take Away Your Tears I Would


I hear when you cry but no one is there to take your hand
I'll take your hand because I care
I carry you in my spirit, mind, soul, and heart
Each waking moment I pray for you to become stronger
And find strength and courage even when it hurts

Everyone goes through sorrow but
If I could take away your tears I would in a heartbeat
I feel your pain when you shed tears
Oh, my heart aches

I see as you stand on a rocky mountain
Looking afar for someone to be by your side
Only if you knew I was right below
All you would have to do is look down

Because if I could take away your tears I would

Drip, drip there goes another tear splashing against the water
Just know all the tears you shed will make you stronger

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
