To my clients who live with pain

I see You
I see your Pain
I see your Suffering

I cannot know what you are going through
I cannot know your Pain
I cannot know your Suffering

And yet
I feel You
I feel your aloneness frustration hopelessness
in the face of a system
that is so ill equipped to meet pain

I feel aloneness frustration hopelessness
I am part of the system
that is so ill equipped to meet pain

I feel small inadequate insufficient
in the face of your Pain
but I want to try to understand to know

So tell me your Story
I will listen for layers angles hidden corners
that you probably never thought were connected

I want to help you see these layers angles hidden corners
I want to help you find laughter and life again
and even if in the end there is nothing I can do
I want you to know that

I see your Suffering
I see your Pain
I see You
