I'll sing a song of sympathy
for those who have loved and lost
I know how it feels to give all you've got
and still have to pay the cost
I'll sing a song of understanding
for those who can't let go
I knew how it feels to find love in a knot
when you thought you just tied a bow
I'll sing a song of sorrow
for those with broken hearts
I know how it feels when love shatters
and you have to pick up the parts
I'll sing a song of pain
for those who have to choose
I know how it feels to have to decide
when either way you lose
I'll sing a song of shedded tears
for those who all too often cry
I know how it feels when it's just to much
and you want to lay down and just die
I'll sing a song of hope
for those who are moving on
I know how it feels to want to give up...
but then the triumph in seeing the dawn.

Emmy....this is a wonderful message and your rhyme is almost perfect....my only suggestion would be to smoothen out the flow just a bit on a few lines, very easily done.
Nice work!
