My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

November 20, 2010 “tears that you cry”

“tears that you cry”

I tasted the salt on your cheek

see the glistening corner of your eye

hear the crack in your voice

feel the tremor in your hand

as you courageously try

to hide them from me

and not let me see

all of the tears that you cry

but I see it all in your face

please tell me my darling why do you weep

when the sunshine is warm

and the sky is so blue

why is the sadness so deep

what are the fears

that draw out the tears

what are the secrets you keep

hidden inside of your heart

I wonder where do you go when you’re gone

when the world is too much

and it comes crashing in

when you feel like being alone

I wish I could tell

your escape from this hell

and help you carry this stone

  2. Beautiful read, Mr Harris. I especially love that beautiful sentiment of helping someone to carry their stone. That brought a tear to my eye.
