I can see your tears --
They're falling to the ground
Like petals from a tree
Falling to the earth.

You're hurting inside --
I can see it tearing
At your heart so much
And you can't speak.

When you look at me --
Your eyes so dark --
Death is in your pupils
And life has fled.

You're hurting so much --
I can tell by the sobs
That escape through
Your closed mouth.

But I can't help --
I'm too far away,
And too young.
I don't know how.

Tell me how
I can help you.
Tell me how
To stop the pain. 

The End
