My shoulders seem heavy,
Because of the weight i carry,
I look for someone around to share it with,
But I’m deserted,
There is no soul in sight,
To help me cope with my plight,
I fall on my knees,
My tears turn cold in the breeze,
No one to give me a hand,
And help me stand,
Please Oh! Please i beg for company,
For someone anyone,
Will you dare to walk through the darkness surrounding me?
And hear my plea,
Will you be brave enough to break the walls i have built around me?
And challenge me,
To face my demons,
And make my ways,
Will you give me company as i gasp for fresh air?
Will your shoulders be the ground for my tears to fall?
Will you hug me as the shivers take their toll?
Will you give me company?
I know the burden is mine to bear,
The baggage cannot be shared,
But you company is all i need,
It will keep me strong as i bleed,
Ultimately when the wound is healed,
Your company will help me to keep it sealed.
