He Isn’t There

He’s not there to hold her when she cries
He’s not there to wipe away the tears
He’s not there to promise it’ll be okay

It all seems meaningless and stupid
How urgently she needs him
She sits folded in a corner, rocking. Mute

Her heart, it pounds
Her soul, it yearns
Her hope, it dwindles

His voice drowns hers out
His words erase hers
His comfort eases the pain

The pain, it grows stronger.
Threatens to take over.
Accepting no surrender

She needs him to hold her close
She needs the tears to flow
She wants him to never let her go

But he isn’t there
