Light a Candle – Words of Sympathy

And I will light a candle for you.
To shatter all the darkness and bless the times we knew.
Like a beacon in the night
The flame will burn bright and guide us on our way.
Oh, today I light a candle for you.

The seasons come and go, and I’m weary from the change.
I keep on moving on, you know it’s not the same.
And when I’m walking all alone
Do you hear me call your name?
Do your hear me sing the songs we used to sing?

You filled my life with wonder, touched me with surprise,
Always saw that something special deep within your eyes.
And through the good times and the bad,
We carried on with pride.
I hold onto the love and life we knew.

And I will light a candle for you.
To shatter all the darkness and bless the times we knew.
Like a beacon in the night
The flame will burn bright and guide us on our way.
Oh, today I light a candle for you.

A Thousand Tears – Words of Sympathy

I’ve cried a thousand tears for you,
Felt a thousand pains.
Screamed a thousand words for you,
Died a thousand days.

Now I’m empty and black like a hole.
Nothing’s in use, I have nothing to control.
Where my heart once was, is where the hole stays.
With the pieces left in it,
you dropped them in the maze.

Except for a single piece,
The only piece I ever knew.
The piece I can’t let go of,
The small piece of you.

I hold it tight but it’s fading, and wearing away fast.
I have to keep a tight hold of it, I need you to last.
But I know eventually this piece of you,
Will fall from me for days.
Then the piece I held onto so tight,
Will too be lost in the maze.

God Saw You… – Words of Sympathy

God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be.
So He wrapped his arms around you,
and whispered, “Come to me”.
You didn’t deserve what you went through,
So He gave you rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best
And when I saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain
I could not wish you back
To suffer that again.

Helpless – Words of Sympathy

My sadness today knows no bounds
As I sit here attempting to scribble verbs and nouns
I cannot laugh; I sigh and frown
I’m helpless

My thoughts are confused; I can’t think clear
Whilst you are far away, yet physically near
I speak – I do not know if you can hear
I’m helpless

I cannot begin to understand
Why are you being taken from this land?
Have you been selected for some eternal plan?
I’m helpless

And now as the end of your life draws near
I do not know what to do, or say – I fear
That each breath you breathe will be the last I hear
I’m helpless
(by Geoff G. Turner)

Why – Words of Sympathy

You made me laugh,
you made me cry,
you made me sit and wonder why.

you were the one,
you were important,
now your just a memory.

you use to drink,
you use to drive,
you never thought that you would die.

it’s not your fault it is mine,
i shouldn’t of let you drink and drive,
but i did and now your gone,
and i’m alone.

you made me laugh,
you made me cry,
you made me sit and wonder why.

Releasing Me – Words of Sympathy

It hurts when I think of you but its impossible not to
I wish I could let go but you don’t know
How much I miss you
Everyday I pray that you will take all the things back
All the horrible things you said
And we could be a family once again
But that day hasn’t come yet
And I am not sure it ever will
And I am willing to except that fact
I wish I didn’t dream of you
But I just don’t know how not to
But someday I will and someday I’ll move on
And learn to live without you
Someday you will free me and I will be ok
But for now I just need to say I am trying to move on
But something is holding me back
Figuring it out is the hardest part yet
Always I will care for you
Nothing can take that away
But right now I can’t be your child
For I am trying to spread my wings and fly away to a better place
Please don’t clip my wings I know it’s hard
But you need to give me back my heart
And let me have my brand new start.
(by Justine K. Wagner)

Inevitable Reality – Words of Sympathy

The clouds move on, the earth turns grey;
The happiness I felt, has quickly gone away;
The whisper of the wind, seems to call my name;
I try to respond, but it seems I’m not the same;
Time elapses slowly, into the universe;
It’s definitely not a pleasure, nor is it a curse;
Nothing seems to matter, no one seems to care;
I reached out to touch you, but you’re not really there;
Everything I see, and everything I feel;
Sometimes seems like a dream, where nothing there is real;
I grasp onto reality, and try to play this game;
But every single thing, always remains the same;
The mist is finally fading, the truth is here to stay;
The illusions are finally passing, the lies have gone away;
But reason cannot save me, tears will not heal;
I’ve giving it some time, to see what will be revealed;
No one has the answers, no one holds the key;
I’m wishing for a miracle, that you’d belong to me;
Until then, I’m lost with my solitude;
Lost in this window, with no view.
(by Liz Waller)

Pain – Words of Sympathy

Pain stuffed inside of me
Can’t let anyone near me
Can’t let anyone see the real me
Can’t let anyone even hug me

All this pain that’s held in me
Why can’t anyone see the real me
Why can’t anyone help me
Why can’t someone just hold me

All this pain that’s eating me
Can’t let go of the pain in me
Can’t get this pain from me
Can’t get this pain out of me

When will the pain stop hurting me
Why can’t I just feel me
Why can’t I just be me
Why can’t someone take this pain from me
(by Kimberly J. Russell)

Drowning – Words of Sympathy

Words I can’t express
Thoughts I can’t explain
Somewhere in the sunlight
I’m destroyed by the rain

I feel so numb and empty
Maybe in this life
I’ll somehow find the ending
To my story, to my lie

He sees me as I’m beautiful
He tells me I’m his world
But something has been missing
Deep inside this girl

When I woke up this morning
I wondered if it’s time
To try my best to be myself
Stop my attempt to hide

And now I am just drowning
Suffocating once again
Not knowing what my life should be
Not knowing who I am
( by Tabitha S. Tackett )

Reluctance – Words of Sympathy

Out through the fields and the woods
And over the walls I have wended;
I have climbed the hills of view
And looked at the world and descended;
I have come by the highway home,
And lo, it is ended.

The leaves are all dead on the ground,
Save those that the oak is keeping
To ravel them one by one
And let them go scraping and creeping
Out over the crusted snow,
When others are sleeping.

And the dead leaves lie huddled and still,
No longer blown hither and thither;
The last lone aster is gone;
The flowers of the witch-hazel wither;
The heart is still aching to seek,
But the feet question ‘Whither?’

Ah, when to the heart of man
Was it ever less than a treason
To go with the drift of things,
To yield with a grace to reason,
And bow and accept the end
Of a love or a season?
(by Robert Frost)
