Empathy Defines Me

United States

It hurts to see the ones I love

Enduring any pain

Though there's nothing to be done

I want to take it all away


Gather up your hurt and worry

And give it all to me

Trade me your blind and broken eyes

So that you may always see


I'll cry for all your sorrows

I'll cry for all your fears

I'll do so every night and day

So that you shed no tears


My shoulders would be heavy

If I could cry for you

But all I ever want

Is for you never to be blue



This poem is about: 
My family
