It hurts me to hear that voice I love,
To hear it filled with sadness,
And to not know why but still try,
To find a way to make it disappear like magic,

I feel helpless and lost in darkness,
To not understand or not know whether,
I am just making things worse for you,
Or if I am making you feel better.

I wish I could be the reason,
Why you smile and know that things aren’t that bad,
That I was your strength when your world falls apart,
Your cure when you are sad.

I wish that my shoulder was a cushion,
Made of silken thread to you when sad,
That you can rest your head and forget it all,
And you’d be happy if I was all you had.

I wish I was the first you approach,
When you need to talk about things,
And I’d stay quiet and just listen,
And stay strong even if it stings,

I wish my eyes could convince you,
That everything’s going to be ok,
But sometimes I feel I’d do you more good,
If I gave up on you and went away.

Because that’s who you are to me,
One smile and all my problems don’t exist,
I wish I could cause you to smile more often,
I wish I was your happiness, but all I can do is wish,

So it’s so lonely to not know why,
Your voice is echoing pain and suffering,
I must try to not think about what is not my business,
And in my attempts to help become another burden.

I wish I could read you like I can most people,
I wish I knew what you day dreamed about,
Even if I might not like the answers and even if I can’t help,
Know I love you and I’ll be someone on whom you can count.
