I have no words
that will change your plight.
I cannot undo the past
nor change the course of your life.
I am powerless to rescue,
fix, or uplift you in your time of need.
Please know that I see you,
know that in my heart I weep.
Know that while I empathize
I can never fully understand your pain.
There is no judgment here,
only heartfelt compassion.
When I reach out a hand to you,
wordlessly, it is out of respect.
I believe in you.
I believe in your strength and your courage.
In my silence, know that I bear witness
to the potential that lies within and before you.
I believe in the power of your own love to overcome.
There are no words to define what is possible in life.
