I traveled many miles just to be with you;
Trying to absorb the many trials we went through.
Through the thickness of the dark, I saw you there;
just standing there without a single ounce of care.
When you looked at me, I couldn’t see,
A single trace of love in your eyes.
I turned away, to walk away, with so much on my heart to say.
It was then you knew that I was through; I saw it on your face.
Too many years I’ve tried, so many tears I’ve cried,
No longer willing to live in denial.
For as long as the ice is cold; and the
desert dry; the salty tap of tears,
will never again flow from these eyes.
