When will the tears ever dry?
How long has it been?
For you? For me? When?
When last I saw your face
Or was it that time or that place?
So many memories, still so real
Sometimes the pain, is all I feel
I think of you so much it seems
Like a world somewhere in a dream
But I see you, standing there so clear
With these eyes forever altered, by so many tears
I don’t just think of times that were good
But where we were, where we stood
The heart it seems is a fragile thing
When it’s broken, the scars so…unclean
I see you in music, in moments, in time
I see with me, and I see me with you….sometimes
Music reminds me of you, but worst is photographs
They recall a time, of us happy, and of your laugh
All this time I’ve tried to go on, one day then another
I’ve fallen, I’ve stood, I’ve mourned, and I utter
Your name, your name, I call…but in silence
To say it aloud would it would be more than intense
Than I could possibly bare but I pray for the day
To be able to see you, to listen, to answer, and to say
That a love so strong that it endures all this time
Rests in my heart, my soul, and often in my mind
When we took our first step did we think, did we know?
That it would all fall apart, that the untrust…would grow?
Was it in a moment, or a series of time
That you truly left me in your heart or just in your mind?
For there is a big difference for the mind won’t let go
But if the heart is still beating, all can be made whole
It will take more than words, more than just thoughts
But of honest discord and not the battles we fought
Living for today includes learning from the past
But also of knowing that true love ever lasts
I know this, I feel it, from in and outside
Asking myself over and over…when will the tears ever dry?
