I Care

I have heard you say it so many times,
No one cares' out there;
And though I know how you sometimes forget,
I hear and I care.

You've often felt the loneliness of life,
Out windows you'd stare;
Thinking at times that no one really knows,
I do and I care.

All the pain you have had to suffer through,
More than is your share;
You wonder if someone else understands,
I know and I care.

You struggle to make ends meet day to day,
The weight you must bear;
Asking, `are there others who can relate?'
I see and I care.

So just do the best you possibly can,
In a world unfair;
And know should you need someone to listen,
I will and I care.
