I will not pretend to know
the struggles you endured,
I have not walked in your shoes
I have not carried your burden.
I will not pretend to know.
In your eyes I will feel the journey that led you here.
In your words I will hear your strength
through despair, through victory.
My heart open,
to understand your pain
I am moved
I am touched
by your salvation and mine.
