I Can’t Imagine What It Is for You

I know that I don’t understand;
And when I try, I make you mad –
I know I can’t imagine what
It is for you, how very bad —

Right now, I feel inadequate,
But I know this is real –
And there is sorrow in my heart
For just how bad
You feel

  1. Heartbreakingly beautiful! Sometimes all we can do is be there for those in pain as understanding is near impossible.

      1. I know.. my husband tried hard to understand too, but just couldn’t.. at least you are there for her. I am sure that alone means a lot.
