Let My Tears Flow...





Let my tears flow

That they should carry

The unrelenting ache

Of my broken heart

Back to a place

Where once

You and I

Held the other close

And would never be parted

Colours...



All is not lost

Have ye more faith

The light may dim

And in shadow bathe

Still, in the darkness


Should you gaze


You'll catch the colours


Dancing in the shade

Another's Shoes...



A day spent

In another's shoes

May expose a weary trail

Spend but a moment

In their head

To truly witness pain.

Blighted...



As for the children

There was a deadness

In their eyes

And a darkness

In their souls

For they 

Had been burdened

With the sins of 

Their forefathers

And would be

Forever blighted.

Fragile Heart...



A heart so fragile

Made of glass

Holding teardrops

From the past
