Banished from my loved ones
to give the help I could
A hug, a hand, a tender smile
or just providing as I should
I feel it in the letters
I sense it on the phone
The pain they feel is more than mine
but it's I who is alone
Another day is over
and I wonder in the night
Do they know the little things I say
are just not me, not right?
Can years of terse adversity make your inner self just go?
Is it possible to change a man
in ways he could not know?
Someday, I will return to them
and hope I can restore
The love, the little passions
that I shared with them before
So if you lie in judgment
the sentence for whom you chose
It's not just who you're judging
it's also those he knows
