If you knew my battle would you stop and see,
If the tears I am crying are for you or me?
If you knew my fears would you open your arms,
to embrace our friendship and keep away what harms?
If you knew I was hungry, not just for food,
would you break bread with me and lighten the mood?
If I prayed at night for the hate to cease,
would you say prayers too for all world peace?
If I felt alone with not a thing to do,
would you pick up the phone and say “I love you”?
Remember I have my battles and you have yours,
Iv’e decided to leave mine at heaven’s doors!
