  1. Is that pain I hear, echoing through your words,
    Here, grab my hand, its free for you to hold,
    Squeeze it tight, as much as your pain would allow
    Let me ease and make it lessen somehow
    I know I’m just a stranger,
    But I do hope you’ll feel better
    My rhymes I hope you’ll appreciate,
    I pray you won’t let your heart be filled with hate
