Show Me

I want to be there for you.

I want to be what you need.

Show me what would change this.

Show me what you wish you could do.

I feel every outburst with you.

I feel the weight of your load.

Tell me how to help you.

Tell me what you see.

I pray every night for your safety.

I pray every night you make it home.

Give me a clue you’ll be just fine.

Give me an answer so you’re not alone.

I touch you in the only way I know how.

I touch you to help us feel this is real.

Lay down with me until our bodies can rest.

Lay down your worries on my chest.

I cry for the pain we incite with these biting words.

I cry for the love which keeps me awake at night.

Clean up the broken mess we’ve left on the floor.

Clean up the crumbled anxiety which keeps us apart.

I see you but am missing something internal which you fight.

I see everything you are, but also can become.

Fill my ears with your untold family sorrow.

Fill this hollowness until it feels like home.

I kiss you to tell you I still want you.

I kiss you because you’re the one I’ve chosen to love.

Show me what will change this.

Show me what you need us to do.
