Friends Are Hurting

I have some friends who are dealing with really heavy things:
Friends are hurting
In unimaginable ways
And I am left
With not knowing
What to say
The words don’t come
To me
And those that do
Seem trite and untrue.

I don’t want to
Shout out platitudes
When what my hurting
Friends need
Is a caring word
A shoulder to lean on
A friend tried and true.

Friends are hurting
In unimaginable ways
And sometimes I find
I just don’t know
What to say.
