The Ribbon - Care for Caregivers
Lost With Words
By Lynn S. Keane

What do you say to your friend when someone close to them dies,
that they look good when they're dead, when you see tears in their eyes.

I feel the hurt inside along with your fear,
I rest my hand on your shoulder to show you I'm near.

I feel the darkness and loneliness and sense how strong you try to be,
I try to say a few words to you but it's really hard for me.

Someone very close to you that person is gone,
you blame yourself and ask what you did wrong.

I stand next to you to let you know I am there,
I will be by your side to show you I care.
