The Tears

The tears well up inside my eyes,

Alone, no one can hear my cries.

Something deep inside me dies.

Rolling tears fall down my cheeks,

from my eyes the water leaks,

Gut-wrenching pain from deep inside,

A pain that I tried to hide.

And a resolve inside me breaks,

underneath me the ground, it quakes,

As my body hopelessly shakes,

for all the tears I cried,

for the sparkle in my eye that died.
