The Tears

Posted on

As the water rained down on me
I felt the guilt of what could be

What if she hadn’t waited, for me
Why did I have to go so far away
The pain of this cursed reality
Is this really the way it’s meant to be?

I see my selfishness
Her selflessness and
I am pained about this history
This life lived so long
Her resolve remained so strong
The odds she faced
The tears, they traced

Down my cheeks as the sobs escaped
I am glad that the house is empty
No one to hear my torment
My cries of responsibility

My tears that don’t change today
Nor tomorrow, not anything
You’re still gone and I understand
But here I am
Wondering where I stand.
