I cried a tear for you today, let go all hopes for love
I’m hear alone still seeking “her” prayers ascending thrones above
So pure your heart I must not start to want your love for me
But when oh God will I find “her” I’ve known that ecstasy
Yet faith in love, in God all same, I ask for strength to wait
To behold the blessings in her eyes to touch those lips of fate.
When I think of you my sweet friend true, I want for you so much
To find the one who will hold your heart, your soul be safe to touch
Remember me my soul and pray to God that I also one day
might find the “one” who must love me, to mend my broken heart you see
I guess the tear I cried today is as much a tear I cried for me.
