You Did Nothing


'Take away my pain', I said.
You did nothing.
You watched as I visited
the dark tunnels of terror.

'Take away my fears', I said.
You did nothing.
You watched as I visited
the howling caves of hyenas.

'Take away my sorrows', I said.
You did nothing.
You watched as I cried
until my eyes became dry.

'Take away my loneliness', I said.
You did nothing.
You watched as I left
the deserted rooms of my heart.

'Teach me to love', I said.
You did nothing.
You watched as I realized
that you taught me all the time.

'Love them', you said.
I did nothing.
You watched as I understood
and began to love.
