    Sun cries on the tragic accident when it was broken and the solar system (including earth) left it alone. But the sun's love forced the solar system to orbit round the sun. Sun's tears never end. My love could not keep my beloved orbiting round me so my tears have been dried. A great poem having a lot of thoughts in it. (Report)Reply

    A very sad write about your love... and I was inspired to write my own version of your poem:

    the sun melts the snow
    on the shoulders of my soutane
    over stains of previous cries;
    i have no more heart to break
    nor blood to shed
