Will you carry me?

My arms have gone numb.

Feet are bruised and swollen.

Hands and knees shake.

Will you hold me?

My heart is so cold.

Mind is filled with fire.

Soul weighs heavy inside.

Will you hear me?

Fallen so far below.

My voice, a mere whisper.

Words foreign in my ear.

Will you carry me,

when I can no longer walk?

Will you hold me,

when it’s time to part?

Will you hear me,

when I am on the other side?
