How can I measure your blank stare?
How can I know you are still there?
I will visit with your soul.
You can still maintain control.
How can I make you more aware?
How can I show how much I care?
Hold your hands try to connect.
Hope to comfort your unrest.
How can I prevent all despair?
How can this life be so unfair?
Cradle you and all your fears.
Seek to catch all fallen tears.
How can I make you want to share?
How can I make you try to dare?
Teach by sharing with you too.
Dare to hope wishes come true.
How can I remain so prepared?
How can I clear up the thick air?
Care for you every day.
Tend to myself the same way.
