I'm sad for you today

Source

I cried for you today

When I heard about your loss

And I’m sad for you today

Considering the cost


I wish I had the words to say

To help you understand

I wish I knew what I could do

To lend a friendly hand


But any comfort that I give

Would not be received

And any words I have to say

Would not be believed


So all that’s left is empty words

And hollow promises

And all that’s left is platitudes

And meaningless regrets


But I am sad for you today

In that I am sincere

And I wish you well today

I hope that much is clear

Hi newengland! The beauty of today is that it is everyday.

but on this particular day, a friend of mine lost someone he knew. Since he doesn't necessarily share my views on things, I didn't know what was left to say. Only that today is everyday he needs it.
