I can still hear your cries
Still feel your pain
The loneliness you felt I feel the same
I know the hell that you lived through
So small and vulnerable you were
I know of the days and nights you cried
There was nowhere to turn
There was no one there
You’ve been hurt so baldy, beyond repair
I know how afraid you were
And how you lived in fear
I know of your pleads to God
To kill you
And take you away from here
Away from the monster
How could he dare
I know of the people who let you down
I did the same
I made you feel guilty and ashamed
I too let you take all the blame
I’m sorry that I haven’t been there
You are my strength my courage
Together we’ll stand
I’ll protect you forever
So cry no longer
I’ll hold you close
I’m here
