The Suffering Shadow

I have tuned my vision
In my recent years
To focus on Gods’ beauty
Surrounding me here

I’ve only glanced at shadows
That life has to reveal
But love has to acknowledge
That suffering is real

Those of helplessness
Through pain have to endure
That in the hands of man
They find this is no cure

Words we find are empty
Clinging to our prayer
All that we can offer
Our friend that we are here

  1. Yes, so true: our own limitations may compel us to offer all that we actually have, our presence; so, that we can be present with the other who is suffering. And, I think that this is also first and foremost required as well, if one was able to offer any words of consolation, assistance or recommendations to alleviate the suffering.
