Holding Back Tears
Holding back tears when you died, I needed to be strong for the others by my side. Holding back tears going through your treasures-what do I get rid of, it was heartbreaking as I touched each one and felt your love. Holding back tears as family lied, I know the truth and it will be my guide. Holding back tears, as you stole right out from under me with cheers.
Holding back tears no more, it is now time to cry a river up to the shore.
