Will you?

You see the pain in her look
How all of her strength
Goes into that smile.
It's hollow though.
You see the darkness beneath.
You could be her candle.
You see the fear in his stance
How he shies away
From all connections.
He's terrified now.
You see his feet on the edge.
You could be his wings.
All she needs is a friend
Is an ear
Is a smile.
All he needs is love
Is laughter
Is time.
Will you be the one?
The one to banish darkness
To make her smile bright.
The one who lights the way?
The one to raise him up
To cast away his fear.
The one who lifts him from the brink?
YOU could be that friend
That ear
That smile
YOU could be that love
That laughter
That time
But will you?
