A Hurting Friend


Tell me about your illness
Help me to understand
You are fighting something
That rarely affects a man

He me to see
What the conquences can be
I'll listen very intently
As you explain it all to me

I don't know what to say
Or even what to do
I wouldn't wish this on anyone
But especially not on you

It breaks my heart to see you
With your mind so occupied
Knowing that you're not far away
From a moment when you'll cry

I'm not sure what I can do
Or even what to say
But know that every single night
My prayers will come your way
