Your Crying - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

I cradle your head

comfort your crying

your face
upon my face

your tears
run into my eyes

your tears
run into my mouth

as if I am
crying them

for you.

Now all
these years

the taste
of your tears

still bitter
upon my lips

your crying
still haunting

my mind.
