A SONG FOR THE TEARS

There's something in my eye
That wasn't there before
It's rolling down my cheek
And falling to the floor
Now there is another
And still another comes
And as the tears begin to dance
I wipe them gently with my thumbs
Why do they haunt me?
What do they want?
The pain just swells within me
As they tease and taunt
They mock my inability
To keep them there within
And as I fight my feelings
I know I'll never win
