i can never be, everything

i know i can never be
everything to you
i know you need others
to surround you

sometimes even to carry you

but it still breaks me
to feel your sadness
and to see no way
to guide you through it

so instead, i’ll stand beside you
take your hand in mine
and be with you
in the lonely, long night

love grief
