Edit Dec. 9th, 2003 -- Typo correction, and one line change near the end. Kate, I know things are better now - but this is, and always has been, for you. I love you.

I know that you feel sorrow,
You've lost something held dear.
But all I can do is wait,
You're far away from here.

And I don't know your feelings,
You fear, your trials, your pain.
I just wish that I could help somehow,
But I know this isn't just a game.

I can't be a shoulder,
Where you can shed your tears,
But maybe I can just be a friend,
And help to ease some fears.

No matter when,
No matter where,
Or even why or how,
I'll stand by your side,
I won't let you fall --
I'll help you face your sorrows,
I'll be there through it all.
