Cry In The Dark

As you cry in the dark and your tears find the pillow
You think I don't know, those tears filled with such sorrow
Are for that long ago love, then comes tomorrow
I wish for today, your heart I could borrow

Dreams filled with the memory of her face
Wisps of her hair, visions of ribbon and lace
The look in her eyes, another time and place
I wish this from your mind, I could forever erase

But war time came and took you away
And never knowing your fate, day after day
Time took its toll, as time will do
She went on with life, her life without you

As I cry in the dark and my tears find the pillow
You'll never know, these tears filled with such sorrow
Are those longing for love, again comes tomorrow
I wish for today, your heart I could borrow

How did I miss this one, MD? And you won! I see why. It is so so beautiful and touching and...well, the feelings you expressed seem to come from a place I know well. You are amazing and I'm so so proud of you. Love you, MD.

Outstanding! Excellent rhyming and flow, and such a bittersweet message. I love the way you conclude by saying 'As I cry...' echoing the 'As you cry...' of the first verse, and your powerful phrasing and imagery. Well done Donna!! Best wishes, Keith
