I Wish I Could Bear Your Pain In Your Stead...

I wish I could take your scars for my own, though I bear my fair share. I wish I could take your regret for my own, though I am partly to blame. I wish I could take your heartache for my own, though it is eased when I am with you. I wish, truly wish, that I could shield you in my own cloak of shadows, and bear you pain, your sorrow, your hate, your anger, your despair, I wish I could take it all and make you happy. And I would bear these wounds and all the weight of the world, and you would never see me falter, for it is for you and you alone I do these things....
