THESE TEARS I CRY

My heart aches with
No reason why
Though life is full
These tears I cry

Those who are near
Don’t understand
At times with them
I even stand

I’ve searched and sought
What holds me bound
What weighs my heart
What brings me down

Perhaps it is
A cry from he
Who sits alone
Worse off than me

And wishes life
Were at an end
He could be saved
By a mere friend

But none has he
And so I hear
Of his sad fate
With distant ear

And though I go
Upon my way
Inside a silent
Stone is placed

And so it goes
Day after day
Until my soul
So much doth weigh

Thus when you look
Into my eyes
And sadness see
Don’t be surprised

These tears I cry
And hold within
Will forever be
The tears for him
