Useless

What can I do to show that I care?
What can I do with hands that are bare?
Witness your hidden struggles each day.
Awaken guilt since I am okay.

What can I do to provide a gain?
What can I do to alleviate strain?
Assist with your load, help lug the weight.
Embrace your burdens, forcing a sway.

What can I do to fix your puzzles?
What can I do to relieve troubles?
Devour the peel then feed you the fruit.
Give you sweet juice, while mine I dilute.

What can I do to numb you of pain?
What can I do so blessings can rain?
Comfort you softly with soothing words.
Recite wise tales from lessons learned.

What can I do to dress our table?
What can I do to make us stable?
Patiently hope and do all I can.
Hold your fine hand, together we stand.

Empathy

A piece of me,
I share with you.
You come to me,
when I feel blue
.

I sympathize
,
with what you feel.
You feel for me,
so no big deal
.


Your problems bring

me such unrest.
Unrest now lifted
off my chest
.


Clear off my mind
,
from your affect.
Affects now gone,
cure my heart next
.


I cure your heart
,
easing your mind.
Your mind so pure,
a heart so kind
.


You look away
,
leave tearful eyes.
Eyes meet my glance,
then say good bye
.


Compose myself
not looking back.
Your empathy,
keeps me on track
.
