I saw you today
working very hard
You looked so sad
and so lonely
I wanted to run to you
to hold you close
and comfort you
and kiss away all your fears
but I couldn't

It was as if some force
stronger than me
was controlling my actions
I tried so hard to move
to run to you
but I was glued to the ground
I had no control over my own movements

Some one else was in control
Some one had taken over me
Over my legs
and over my mind
I wanted to comfort you
I wanted to save you
Truly, I did
but I couldn't
