Cry


Cry me a river,
The downpour of oceans,
The glittering waters,
Silent bleeding of your eyes.

Cry me a river,
Let the waters tell,
The story the mouth can't say,
Pour out the grief.

Cry me a river,
Streams of pains,
Seas of unhappiness,
Tales of my eyes.

Cry me a river,
Songs of infants,
Weapons of women,
Downfall of men.

Cry me a river,
Let the soul speak,
Empty the hurt,
Release the soul.

Cry me a river,
Sins the songs,
Of your broken lyrics,
And its sad note.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
