My Trespasses

byDs Padawan©

I tuck my daughter in to bed
And meaningless thoughts enter my head
I try to keep the "poor me's" away
Yet they trespass here today

Tears are pushed from my eyes
And yet another part of me dies
How much more can I handle?
My heart is burning like a candle

Here a flame; there a flicker
Then it burns out with a snicker
Give me strength; give me hope
Give me anything to help me cope

I am so tired of crying alone;
Tired of hearing my broken heart moan
Patch the pieces; sew the tear
Send someone who shows some care
