Tonight I Have a Tear

Tonight I have a tear for all of yours upon your pillow
I have one for every hair upon your head
Why do I cry for you
With a tear for every letter in your name

If I could see your thoughts
Clearer than you writing them on paper
For you can’t even speak
I wouldn’t have the strength to stand
I’d be so weak

It’s not ever very easy to leave
A home shared with so many turns of time
And when you cannot count the years with just your hands
I’m sad to know that you have to say goodbye

Tonight I have a tear for all of yours upon your pillow
And you have one for every hair upon your head
Tonight, I cry for you
With a tear for every letter in your name

    Sometimes I like writing because it can make beauty out of situations which may not be ordinarily seen in such a way.

    That’s what I just decided, at least.

    Thank you very much, Meghan :)
