My heart breaks for you

Updated on August 31, 2012

My heart broke for you today

I pictured you there

Standing in the rain

Tears streaming down your face

Crying out to God above

Wondering where he’s been

My heart broke for you today

Seeing you in pain

Wishing there was a way

To take away the rain

To shoulder all your pain

If I could only carry this burden

For you, I would

My heart breaks for you today

I wish that I could give your strength

I wish I knew what to say

I hope you know I’m standing here

All I can do is pray

And even though you can’t see me

You’ll never be alone

I’ll be here for you

      Wonderful poem April. My wife and I recently had dinner with a couple who had lost their 8 yr old daughter. The father opened up to me as he shared his story of pain and perseverance. I could only listen as I found it difficult to relate. Sometimes all we can do is stand by the hurting and to pray.

      Thank you Michael, I know listening can also be very helpful. It is comforting to know that God has given us the ability to share one anothers burdens

      This reminds me of last year when my sister lost her youngest daughter. There was nothing I could do and there were no wise and comforting words (there never are). All I could do was watch her in her anguish, and pray for her.
