If only I could reach you.
I want to show you what I know,
I only want to help you,
I just want for your light to glow.
I want your light to shine its brightest,
Although you don't seem to care,
So I will care for it instead,
A burden that I am willing to bear.
I will always take care of your light,
Until you find your pathway home,
I will then teach you to care for your light,
So your light may have a chance to grow.
I have tried my best to tell you,
But you just don't want to listen,
So I will keep praying for you to get better,
So that your light can someday glisten.
