Take From Me

Take from me 
What you need 
God gave me 
What I have 
Not to keep 
To myself in greed 
That's the purpose 
Of me, I feel 
Is to help 
Someone else heal .

When your alone 
I fill your 
Empty space unknown 
Speaking words 
You always wanted 
But never did hear 
Maybe in the quiet 
Just hold you near 
Making Gone 
All the tears .

But God 
What of me 
I'm made hollow 
Far beyond empty 
I have nothing 
Much that is left 
My aching heart 
Breathes a shallow breath 
I'm so weary 
From this blessed gift .

My feelings fall 
Like leaves 
To their death 
My kisses are given 
And taken from thieves 
My body shivers continually 
Without release 
Must this always be 
Everything but the tears 
They take from me.
