Lonesome Tear

Written by: Brandlynn Young

I can’t stop crying, and just get over it
The losses I’ve faced the past year.
What’s the big deal, why don’t I heal?
And stop crying these lonesome tears.

What’s there to hurt when I’ve lost two uncles,
A cousin, and aunt and a baby?
Add to that a love three pets and a husband
None of that should hurt ya think maybe?

None of that should affect me, shouldn’t cry a tear
I’m sure a wimpy one, aren’t I?
But these lonesome tears keep on coming like rivers
I’m so stupid for wanting to cry.

No reason to cry, no reason to grieve
But it sure is lonely out here.
I’ll curl up and die, if once more I cry
Just one more lonesome tear.
