As salty tears flow in sad waves
Arms hang like branches blown
Reach weeping into foggy thoughts
Of starlight dreams I've known.
Birds chirp a dirge in memory
Outside my window's dawn.
A new day heralds sorrow
Alas, my love has flown.
Deep in my heart, a flower wilts
It speaks of love's demise
Waif flora keeps a painful watch ~
by nature's rules 'twill die.
Sweet sun shine hope upon this soul
Clouds spare your shadow's cast
Rain go away another day I need
Nature's sweet fruits to last.
Place flowers on my window sill,
That speak of rainbow's hues.
Heaven sing hymns of strength and love
and send courage to start anew.
