Forever Grief

Written by: Broken Wings


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.
