Ocean of Tears

She was lost in the ocean waves
her aspirations became one with the sand
It’s easy to wither when you are left behind
Did she leave me or did I leave her?

But she will never cry
She will never even try
This ocean of tears is all mine
But she could never cry
she won’t even allow a sigh
This ocean of tears is all mine

I tried to reach out to her
in spite of all the distance
That set us apart, oh
it still gets to me

Even after all that has happened

Her hands formed the waves
that wash away my heart slowly
I feel the dread of what she has become
rather than the person I am

But she will never cry
She will never even try
This ocean of tears is all mine
But she could never cry
she won’t even allow a sigh
This ocean of tears is all mine

We walked on the beach
our footsteps were shadows in the evening light
But when I stopped
and professed the dead requiem I held
I turned to see
the footsteps only belonged to me

The End
