Tears


 Tears

gazing at the roses
in the cool evening air
she sits in the garden
a flower in her hair

and she smiles
for a while
through the tears she has shed
and I shake my head

only love she does say
can make you want to stay
as with a sigh and a kiss
she turns and walks away

and I smile
for a while
through the tears that I shed
and she shakes her head

and the world we had made
fell from its cradle to its grave
and the love we had found
lay in pieces on the ground
