Humanity

written by: Sheri M. Stewart

 

I touch your tears
I can not stop
I find I weep with you
let me sit here quietly
even if it is only for a moment
I will share your burden and cares
perhaps some day
I will discover how
to erase your sorrows and my own
but until then my friend
you will not have to bear them alone
no, I am not as strong as you think
without realizing it
you give me that strength
I will tell you a little secret,
others burdens are easier to lift
and to elevate your spirits
I must put aside my own woes
and while I shoulder your pain
my own becomes bearable
for in such moments
I loose my self-indulgent ego
and remember my humanity
