Empty Words

Empty Words

And someday time will heal the pain
I’ll look back and understand
Why this had to happen
In the bigger plan

That’s what people tell me
When they see my grief
And empty words fall out of mouths
To give themselves relief

Jason’s death does not make sense
Yesterday, tomorrow, or today
And telling me it somehow is best
Are hurtful words you shouldn’t say

Everything happens for a reason
Is another cruel lie
Falling from well-meaning lips
After I watched my Love die

It’s hard to see my sorrow
And not know what to say
But sometimes silence and a hug
Can go a long long way

My path is mine alone
One you can’t understand
So don’t try to give advice
Just sit and hold my hand
