Love You Better

I won’t take your burdens as my own
Because then they weigh me down
And I can no longer
Help you stay afloat.

I will partake in your pain
Cry real tears with you
Try–and walk in your shoes
So I know how it hurts.

Not tell you how you err
Or ply you with advice
Should’s, could’s, and must’s
No, but I will point you towards Love
With faith that there you will find hope.

This way I remain buoyant in joy
So I can always help you stay afloat.
