Be You're Hero

I wish for one day I could be your hero
Instead of feeling useless, less than a zero
I’d take all your pain roll it up in a ball
Then threw it into space so you won’t hurt at all

All things past and present I would change for you
Alas as no hero will my shoulder do
To make all things better if only I could
Take all the worry from you I would

I can only stand by, be there all the time
To offer you comfort in even this rhyme
For I love you and  hope you know it’s true
There is nothing for you I would not do

It hurts me so deeply even though I don’t weep
I try to be me, in check my emotions I keep
Anger frustration the things that I feel
Due to all that has happened you got a bad deal

I cannot even tell you I know how you feel
For in my life nothing now seems real
The things that life throws you and yet you bounce back
That kind of courage is something I know I lack

No matter the decisions that you have to make
I’ll be right beside you, from you I won’t break
Remember my baby I love you it’s true
Even though I can’t put right the wrongs done to you

    It is more important how a man finishes than how he starts. From all that I have read of your writing I only see a good man. Your heart is in the right place brother. Rick
