TEARS THAT NEVER DRY

Written by: Boitumelo Mailula

TEARS THAT NEVER DRY...
A JOYFUL MOMENT JUST TEMPORARY HEALING,
MY TRUE FEELINGS NOT NOTICED.
MATERIALS NOT WHAT I LONG FOR,
A HUG CAN TAKE ME A LONG WAY.
MOMENT LIVED ONLY EXTENDED BY WARM HEARTS OF STRANGERS,
I FEAR WITHOUT THEM A WEEK IS LIFE PERIOD FROM LAST SMILE.
IT HURTS MORE BECAUSE I’M WISER THAN YOU THINK.
NOTICED EVERY TIME YOU LIE YET I KEEP STRONG.
FALSE PROMISES YET I STILL FALL FOR THEM EVERYTIME,
KEEP BELIEVING YOU WILL CHANGE BUT SLOWLY LOSING HOPE.
HOW DO I CALL GOD IF YOU THAT HURTS ME LOVES HIM MORE,
COULD GOD HELP ME IF YOU THAT HURT ME SPEND MORE TIME IN HIS PRESENCE?
I FEAR THIS TEARS WILL NEVER DRY,
THAT DEATH COULD BE WHAT DRIES THESE TEARS.
STRONG FEELINGS OF HATE GROWING NOT CAUSE OF LOVE,
LOVE I DO GET BUT DON’T SEEM ENOUGH.
THIS MONTAIN NOT EVEN FAITH CAN REMOVE.
CAN’T KEEP THE TEARS FROM FALLING ANYMORE,
HAD YOU GAVE UP ON ME I COULD HAVE LIVED BETTER,
TRY TO PROVE MYSELF YET IS NEVER ENOUGH.
I FEAR TO GIVE UP ON YOU SO YOU DON’T HURT LIKE I DO.
KEEP HOPING FOR A BRIGHTER DAY, 
SEEM LIKE I’M JUST HOPING FOR SUMMER IN PLUTO.
ALL I CAN DO IS JUST PRAY ONE DAY YOU WILL TRUST ME,
TRUST IS ALL I EVER NEEDED FROM YOU.
CAN YOU EVER TRUST ME? 
TELL ME WHAT TO DO AND I WILL DO IT ALL.
TRUST IS ALL I NEED FROM YOU,
CAUSE I’M TIRED OF CRYING.
TRUST IS ONE OF TWO WAYS THAT CAN DRY THIS TEARS,
WILL YOU EVER WIPE THESE TEARS?
