helpless


I watched you as you set there
Sat there helpless
I watched you as you looked at me
You looked at me with eyes filled with sorrow
With eyes full of tears
You wanted to cry, but couldn't
You were helpless
I was the one in pain
But through your eyes
I could see my pain
Your eyes
my mirror
You wanted to reach down
To remove my pain, but couldn't
So you felt helpless
I didn't cry because I'm used to this pain
But you!
You took the pain and made it yours
Although it was impossible
You putted yourself in my shoes
Ohh! I watched you mama
Ohh I watched you sister
Ohh I watched you friend
As you were looking at me
Dying slowly infront of you
Every second drawing my last breath
I watched

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
