Let me cry

My tears, they live at night,
They can't survive the day
The sun will dry them up
The wind blows them away

The morning comes again
I lie awake in bed
I start all it all once more
I clear it from my head

I follow old steps taken
I try to hold my thought
I try to keep the peace
The past won't be forgot

Slowly oh so slowly
I know this fog will clear
I know the air will lighten
With sadness not so near

But when my body's still
And the quiet surrounds me
I shut my eyes so tight
But the tears slide underneath

Moving on is hard
So many chores go on
That prove to be a reminder
Of a woman that is gone 

Gone from her door step
Gone now from her home
Gone from her family
Her husband now alone

No one will Forget her
No one will even try
To stop those tears at night
Because it's ok to cry
