I heard a voice tremble and shatter like glass
With a sadness so complete and a pain so raw
Nothing could be said nor comfort found
The essence of humanity shaken to the core

Tears flowed then and continue in a flood
Pooling in a lake of sorrow and despair
Heart not broken but ripped in two
Time will heal but requiring great care

To help in any way or lift the burden
Relieve some hurt and just sooth the pain
An impossible task it just cannot be done
That won’t stop the attempt all the same
