FOR US THEY WEEP


A few drops of rain
From the sky will always fall
Like tears from the heavens

For every life
There is a final call
Like tears from the heavens

Washed anew
Fast asleep we fall
Like tears from the heavens

Raining down to earth
For our rebirth
We are tears from the heavens

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
