I don’t know any other way to say it
And I’m not even sure I can empathize
Because I’ve never gone through
What’s happening to you.
But I have arms to console you
Ears to listen
Or a good collection of records to play if you don’t feel like taking.
And I’m sorry–
For the bad things, the horrid things, the things that turn one’s stomach.
I’m sorry anyone has to feel pain or loss or suffering.
