Then I Cried

by zvikov   May 19, 2017


Is this all that we have?
You teach your boy to walk
One day he walks away from you
Is this all that we have?
When we know how to love
Then we have to let go

Is this all that we have?
You’re proud your girl can run
She prepares to run away from you
Is this all that we have?
We sow seeds of happiness
We reap nothing but misery

That's when I cried when I thought
Man could be nothing but a flower
He flourishes a moment
Before fading away
We try to paint the petals
Can we stay young forever?
A flower has to die
Before it rises again

That's when I cried when I thought
Man could be worse than the sun
He rises in the morning
Before hiding again
But the sun has another life
It rises the next morning
If man is not the same
We are beings full of misery.
