Empathy

If there was any way I could erase all your repents
I would have my own suffering slow your sore descent
It amazes me to watch hope grow where trust has been cut off
Like roses rising out of desert land in acred crops
I'm shocked to find you in one piece for all the shots you've taken
It's inspiring how your spirit can be stirred but never shaken
I wonder how a song can still be played within your heart
A record player wouldn't sing if IT was torn apart
I wish that I could tell you you'll never be hurt again
But wishing won't help you, take my empathy instead
Never slip or stumbled on this tightrope we call life
Everything we do can cause us consternating strife
I wish you well in all you do and all affairs of the heart
For now all I can do is hope I played a salient part...
