Ache

oh Lord, comfort her tender heart that has been shattered by the effects of sin in this life

wipe away tears flowing from young eyes that have seen so much sadness

tiny hands that have held more weight of this world than i ever have

i do not understand

i sometimes wish i did, though i would not want to go through the pain

i wish i did so i knew what to say

i can only let her sob silently into my shirt, feeling her shoulders shaking, as i stroke her hair and pray

oh Lord, comfort her

tell her words that i wish i had

calm the emptiness and ache

hold her all the minutes and hours and days i cannot wrap my arms around her

don't let her go

be near
