Tears of Sorrow
Tears of sorrow are forever more;
Knowing what's coming eats my core.
Thoughts of you flood my mind;
Knowing that love no longer binds.
My dreams no longer find you there;
Walking alone now something I bear.
And knowing your heart holds me no longer;
Tears my soul which once was stronger.
The voices they say 'let her go';
Weaken each day how do I know?
Tears of sorrow hold my cries;
My body weakens and wants to die.
My strength has escaped me;
My mind has neglected me.
'Let her go, ' now rings;
'Let her go, ' now sings.
But how do I move on, how do I live;
Knowing in time nothing will give.
All that I was is forever gone;
My wife, my daughter, and my son.
Forced to look into my future;
My heart ripped to pieces nothing to suture.
So now I think of the unthinkable;
Ending my life which once was unsinkable.
'Let her go, ' they say 'your pain will end';
How do I do it, she's my wife, my best friend.
'Let her go, ' they whisper 'no longer yours';
I'm trapped in a room without any doors.
'Let her go, ' they chime 'accept what is true';
Fallen to knees only one thing to do.
Tears of sorrow, on my cheeks this day;
Tears of sorrow blinding, now all is gray...
