For You

For my “son” Pasha


For you

If I could

I would take away

The pain

Just to see you smile once more

And hear your laughter

 

If I could

I would take away

The sickness

For you

Because you’re too young

To bear its burden

 

I would open the skies

For you

If I could

To wash away the disease

That’s taken so many

I’ve known

 

And I will shed a tear

For you

Which I have

With prayers of survival

And love

And hope
