I Could

I could only see the left hand side of your face

As your left eye started to well, and water

My heart broke

My tears came forward, gushing

I felt completely helpless, as all i wanted was to make you feel better

Was to comfort you and take away that pain that i knew I could not

The pain that was self-induced in guilt

Words were not sufficient, yet i spilled them out anyroads, in any way that i could, so to cushion you within them, so that you would not fall so harshly

With that tear, I felt all the fears I have had that were akin to yours

All the self-anger

and that was the last thing I ever wanted you to feel

I don't think you will ever know how much my heart breaks when you are a little boy lost.

I've been in his position and I think knowing you care enough to be hurt by his pain would be helpful. Try not to feel too guilty, you can't make yourself feel something you don't. Hugs.
