This is for my sister. I'm breaking to pieces knowing I can't do anything to help...

Too Deep

I want to hold her

I want to be there for her

I want to reach out and touch her


But she won't let me.


I want to silence her tears

I want to make her smile again


But it's not that simple.


I want to take all her pain away

And replace it with a little peace


But I can't.


Becauseher hurt goes too deep

Her heart is too wounded

Her mind is too scattered


And all I can do is watch

and have patience

until time heals her.
