Take Me Instead

I think it'd be better
for all of us
if we just agreed
that the best way 
to solve this problem 
is for me to take this from you
and you to be okay.

Why can't this 
take me away 
and not you?

I'd do anything
to take this burden from you
to take it upon me
and let me carry it 
for you. 

I wish life could work that way.
