Ever held a hand as it grows cold?
A hand that held yours times untold.
Ever seen a light as it dies?
A light the spark that brought you to life.
Ever held a heart as it unfolds?
A heart that around you did mould.
Ever held a child as it cries?
A child a child forever in your eyes.
Ever walked a mile in those shoes?
Shoes that you never had to choose.
Ever had to fall into the deep?
Deep down where monsters did keep.
Ever had to pick ‘tween lose and lose?
Choices made long before you choose.
Ever had to sing someone to sleep?
Someone you could never ever keep.
Ever had to say, to say goodbye?
Goodbyes you wish you knew for why.
