Tears For You

Tears For You

Everyone cries

For something

For someone

And since I met you

I cried my tears

For you

I cried

For your angel smile

I cried

For your open heart

I cried

For your every joy

I cried

For your every laugh

I cried

For every fallen tear

I cried

For every desperate scream

I cried my tears

For you

I cried

For the smile that wasn't mine

I cried

For the heart I did not own

I cried

For the joy I did not feel

I cried

For the laughter I could not share

I cried

For the tears I wasn't to wipe away

I cried

For the screams I couldn't soothe

I cried my tears

For you

Now

On this lonely night

Lying here

In a cheerless room

That holds treasured memories

Faded in my mind

Clear in my heart

I cry my tears

For you

I cry

For the hands ravaged by blood

I cry

Because they never held yours

I cry

For my broken heart

I cry

Because you never patched it up

I cry

For my fallen dreams

I cry

Because you never realized them

I cry my tears

For you

The shadows are closing in

My eyes are blind

I can't feel the pain

I am deaf to my mother's cries

As she hammers at my locked door

I cry my tears

For…for…

I cry

For the hands ravaged by blood

I cry

Because it is I who have maimed myself

I cry

For my broken heart

I cry

Because it is I who could not heal myself

I cry

For my fallen dreams

I cry

Because it is I who has ripped their wings

I cry my tears

For…

As my life

Whispers goodbye to me

Dawn steals

Wraps me in its cool glow

Darkness embraces me

Gentle fingers around my throat

As my death

Opens its arms to me

I cry my last tear…

For me
