I wish I could take your pain away
Wrap you in my love and hide you from the world
I wish my hugs and kisses could heal you but unfortunately my love is not enough
And because of this all I can do is hurt with you
I know I’m suppose to be strong for you but somehow you end up comforting me
I wish for a second you could see what I see when you look at me
When you look at me I see a little boy trapped in the body of a man
A little boy who somehow is trapped in his past
A little boy who has to be a man but may not be ready for that
I wish I could buy you time
I wish I could take your pain away and make it all mines
I wish I could make the world see you as I do
Beautifully sculpted
A heart of gold
A kind soul
Your heart is so pure but sadly you’re only judged by your mistakes
And because of this you live a life of high stakes
Because of this people have preconceived misconceptions of you
But please, when all else fails know that I see the true you
I see the innocence and love in you
I see the great in you
Please know that when the rest of the world doesn’t I will always love you
I will always be on your team
I will always give my all
I will always be my all
For you
When you hurt I do too
And when you can’t I will drop to my knees and beg God to forgive your sins for you
I will always weep true pain for you
I will always have unjaded love for you
I will always desire happiness for you
I wish I could take your pain away
Wrap you in my love and hide you from the world
I wish my hugs and kisses could heal you but unfortunately my love is not enough
And because of this I pray
Late nights like these I lay in bed with you on my mind
I worry
Not because I believe you can’t protect yourself but because I know so many odds are against you
I know so many people of the world are not interested in getting to know you
So many people of the world have false ideas of who you are but I truly know you
I know when you are hurt
And in those moments of your pain I have to be strong for you
I pretend to be made of steel but when you’re not looking I’m crying for you
Tears flowing
Eyes red and burning
Soul broken
Back bent
When you’re not looking I’m frazzled and afraid for you
Never of you
I’m afraid to lose you
This is more than a want
I truly do need you
I need your greatness
I need your presence
I wish I could take your pain away
Wrap you in my love and hide you from the world
I wish my hugs and kisses could heal you but unfortunately my love is not enough
wishI wish I could take your pain away
Wrap you in my love and hide you from the world
I wish my hugs and kisses could heal you but unfortunately my love is not enough
