Tears are silent prayers

If I had arms that could stretch
around the world
I would hold you tightly
for dear life
and not let go
until the very last tear
from your deep dark well of sorrow
had fallen on my breast

If I had wings
I would carry you in my arms
And fly back to a time
When you felt safe
Before fear began

And if tears are silent prayers
Then I pray for you
From the river in my heart
For you to have the strength
To carry on
