Forever Grief


O Tears, that never cease to fall,
   O Grief, that never ever ends
The beloved, though dead, return,
   Into each moment of my life.

Memories veiled in sadness always,
   At their tombs, I stand and weep;
I whisper with the dead, a captive,
   I look for comfort into the past.

O Time, turn back, turn back time,
   O Tide of years, flow back the years;
Make me an innocent child again,
   For I am so weary of the weeping.

O Fathomless are my flowing tears.
    O Endless is my forever grief.

    Turning back the hands of time only replays the same scenarios. We must decide what to do before the future is now and we have we have nothing left but a broken record. Allan
