We couldn’t celebrate our love
We wouldn’t know if there was loss
We would forever be drawn to nothing
We would be simply nothing
for with tears live our emotions,
for with tears we become alive within ourselves
for with tears we can reach a climactic end to the suffering,
– perhaps only to live within the carnage by choice –
if we could not show tears, we would be the zombies we choose to ignore,
yet the value of a cleansing cry leaves hope,
yet the value of a quiet release gives opportunity to know
yet the value of a screaming paradox of lost love allows another to take your place.
for within our tears is a pool of thoughtful love
to know we live in each other’s eyes, rather than a barren wood,
we do delight to feel such joy that brings our tears
we do need to let go of all the hurt and pain and grief with zeal,
we do know our love in tears can become real.
If there were no tears I would change my music
If there were no tears …
my eyes would be dry.
