Put My Arms Around You

A song caught my ear yesterday because of its sound. I have always been drawn to the minor keys since they seem to cry out to something deeper in me than I can understand or even express. I had played it several times in a row while driving home and this morning when I left for work, again I was drawn to play it a few more times. It wasn’t until I was miles from home before a single sentence of what words were being sung hit me. “I can’t change the way you feel, but I can put my arms around you.”
These words hit my heart deeply. I think about the sea of people that surround us daily and how some of them are suffering such anguish. I may not have the instant answers to a problem but I certainly have compassion to understand what causes us great pain. In those moments I desire great wisdom to just hug someone when words just won’t do.
