Open your eyes and look at their pain,
don’t turn away, it will never be the same.
They weep in their sleep, they humour their death,
they scream in their dreams and wake up out of breath.
Their life is a knife that cuts through their heart,
you have to be gentle to their mind’s cruel art.
Don’t ever assume that threats are a joke,
don’t every judge their feelings, they could easily choke.
Be there and be loving, don’t leave them alone
make sure that embrace is increasingly shown.
