Here For You

I trace the shadows of your heart in your eyes
Your worries darkly smudged below your lashes
I am impotent to shed resolving illumination
On the astounding troubles that eclipse your smile
Crushed by the oxygen sapping anguish
Toxic virus disseminating from my chest
Chilling all the cells of my grieving body
At your pain that I cannot absorb nor abolish
Comfort and listening seem feeble offerings
The only things of consequence I have to give
Though paltry, I set them before you now
To use as and when you need
I offer my heart in loving support always
