When the clouds of pain loom in the sky,
when a shadow of sadness flickers by,
when a tear finds its way to the eye,
when fear keeps the loneliness alive.
I try and console my heart,
asking it why it cries?
Life imparts just this.
These deep silences that emerge from within,
are the reason these very meaningful thoughts begin.
These deep silences that scream from within,
have been handed out to all by time.
Everyone’s story has a little sorrow.
Everyone’s story has those moments of sunshine.
But there is no need for the water in our eyes,
for every moment can be a new life.
Why do we let them pass us by?
After all, why is it that we cry?
