For You

For You

Regina Puckett


I stand here and watch you bleed

And wish I could be everything you need

But life is never- ever like that, I’m afraid

To see you smile – for your pain I would trade

I would carry your worries inside my heart

I would stave off those who try to tear you apart

I would wipe your brow and hold your hand

I would smile through my tears and take a stand

Because that’s what friends do and so much more

Just so you know – for you- my heart is an open door
