Do This For Me - Poem by Elaine Harris

I asked the sky to cry for me
my tearducts have run dry
the thoughts tear at me in my head
till I feel like I could die

I asked the flowers to wilt for me
my muscles are so weak
to crumble and fall I witness this
and do not feel so bleak

I asked the trees to dropp their leaves
they didn't answer my groan
watching them dancing in the breeze
makes me feel so all alone
