These Tragic Times

Even with the best of my efforts to make,
I can not erase from anyone their felt sorrow.
Even with comments to express the depth,
Of my own concern...
I can not heal a heart that yearns,
To be freed from feeling agony.
But I can do this and easily...
Weep privately for the suffering of others.
And to hope I am not alone,

[Hata Bildir]
