We all share pain

The way we share love

The way we share ourselves

We all feel pain

Some of us more than others

We all understand pain

We've all met pain

Walked around the block with pain

Joined it for coffee and a cigarette

We all fear pain

And loath pain

And wish it would let us be

No one should be alone in pain

But so many are

Pain visits us throughout our lives

It's there at the end
To remind us
Of the good parts

The sunsets
The sunrises
The kisses
Being held
Being loved

We drift off
Say goodbye
Follow the steps
Of one last dance

And pray
Wherever we go
There is no such thing
As pain
