Loving You Uselessly

You are silent

and sad

and I wish

I could make you smile.

And I know

you have woes,

but I wish

you'd forget for a while.

What would it take?

I would spin you a story

of worlds far away,

and pour you a glass

of the sunniest day.

If it would help.

If I thought it would help.

If I had any hope it would help.

So what can I do?

If only I knew.

I would search the world over

and under, and through

If only I knew…
