The Sick Helping The Sick

Giving a helping hand

I am sick, my friend is sicker

I want to help her get better,

But what can I say to take the pain away?

It is obvious that I do not know the cure

But they are dying and I need an answer

What can I do but pretend I know

I try to look up answers

But it all is the same and none of it works

Is there a cure for the sickness

That forever plagues our minds

All I can do Is watch them get worse

Watch them get worse and get scared

Of the one phone call

that I have always been dreading

Where I learn that they are gone

And there was nothing they could do

But I could have done something

Don’t know what it could be

But I could have done it
