I’ve seen your tears

I’ve seen your tears
They fall without sound
I’ve seen your pain
They scream without being heard

I’ve seen your tears
They crumpled the letter I hold
I’ve heard them fall
They made a crater in your heart

I’ve seen your tears
They flood the entire country
I’ve seen you drown in them
Knowing you were crying for help

I’ve seen your tears
Preparing for the ebbing hope, the rising rage
I’ve seen them brave the fears
Rallying strength and courage

I’ve heard these tears, unshed
Ever present in your voice
But you never knew I saw them
Always so brave and proud
With no beginning or end

I’ve seen your tears

Artist's Description

I wrote this at a time when I was at my most depressed. Seven years later, I look at this and I wonder how I ever got out of that depression.
