Waiting Up Here

My heart cries watching you
I ache to fix what looks broken
To make it all happen for you
Let life be easier and brighter
Your vapid eyes glassed over
Trudging through each day
Dragging yourself further down
Hung by the mere weight
Of the breath in your lungs
Difficult to exhale
Even harder to take in
But the path isn’t mine
My role to listen and be
Perhaps a wise word or two
But beyond that
I protect my own energy
That both of us
Don’t find ourselves
At the bottom of this chasm
With no one to pull us up
