Here's my try at poetry, not the happiest or the best you'll ever read though.

I feel your pain and sorrow now
As tears stream down your face
I ache to reach right out to you
And take you from this place

I wish we could depart from here
And never once glance back
But I realize now that courage
Is the crucial thing I lack

Now all I do is stand idly by
As tears come to your eyes
While deep inside my soul I know
That I am why you cry...

Note: I haven't edited much of this yet so I was hoping for some constructive criticism on how I could improve.
