I Wish I Could Save You

I Wish I Could Save You long poem

Photo by shelbyasteward


Well it just breaks my heart
To see you in tears and a
Drinking yourself to death
Trying to erase the past and
Calm your fears…
Well I Wish I Could Save You
Put my arms around you
And take away your pain
But I can’t save you if you,
If you don’t want to change
Still it kills me to see you
All hung over from another
Night flying higher than a
Kite, wasted again and
Wasting your life away
Digging yourself into an
Early grave oh Lord
I Wish I Could Save You
Put my arms around you
And take away your pain
But I can’t save you if you,
If you don’t want to change
I wish I knew what turned
You this way but it’s a
Mystery to me even tho
We’ve been friends for
Years and years I can’t
Break this chain, I can’t
Set you free but…
I Wish I Could Save You
Put my arms around you
And take away your pain
But I can’t save you if you,
If you don’t want to change
No I can’t save you if you’re
Not willing to change!
