Your Tears (Poem By John D Sheridan, Music By Ian Inkster) - Poem by Dr Ian Inkster
Should ever come
To your dear eyes.
They should always be full
Of happiness, and laughter, and surprise
Tears are for tired eyes like mine -
That the world has made sad
Nothing can touch my heart
Or wake my fears
So surely as
Poet's Notes about The Poem
It does sometimes strike me hwo so many poets give such mundane titles to often enough dramatic and romantic verse! Thus Sheridan's Youth to Death might surely have been entitled Fearsome Death, or perhaps Pass me and Leave Me. This present short verse might well have been better entitled Tears are for Tired Eyes! Its all very frustrating for any songwriter certainly! !
