Why I Cry

Tonight I want to cry
But don`t ask why
Because I can`t answer that
Because I don`t know
And it is as impossible
To answer thee, as it is for me to fly
Maybe that`s why I´m crying
Because I want to fly
To roam free
Unchained, untamed, unseen
I want to be a shadow
Silently traveling through time
Or maybe a star
Shining on the darken sky
Or maybe something else
Something yet unthought of
So that`s why I cry
Maybe, perhaps, is that why?
No, I cry for every bad I did
And that I didn`t
I cry for all my memories
For all my thoughts
That went forgotten
For all those friends that died
And those that didn`t
So is my crying for all that?
Maybe, perhaps, come to think about it, no
No, I cry for time
It`s passing like it´s running
I cry for all my years
And those that will fall upon
I cry for for all those times
I won`t know what to do
I cry for everyone
Vanishing before me
And mother, father, if you see this
I´m crying for you too
But is that true?
Am I really crying for all that?
Yes, I believe I am
But no, there´s something more
There is another I cry for
Beautiful and graceful
She stands above all else
Yes, I know now why I´m crying
I`m crying for my love

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
