Your Turn to Cry

There isn't always much to say
When things happen a certain way
And someone that you know is hurt
In ways that can't be helped by words

But all you hope, is that they know
That people care, and deeply so
An energy, you can't explain-
How you can somehow feel their pain

More than every now and then
You cannot help but think of them
And more than every little while
You think of ways to make them smile

When it's someone that you know
Who regularly, helps people
And adds a touch, to all they do
Of beauty, grace and wisdom true

Then the least that they deserve
Is a sincere reminder
That they have touched so many lives
And finally, it's their turn to cry

We cannot change the pain you face
But we can love you all the way
So pick a shoulder, rest your eyes
And do nothing, but cry.
