Tears In The Rain

by Dennis   Mar 20, 2008

It rained the day that I broke my own heart
Stood crying there...our souls apart
Where for so long we dreamed of living as one
Shared broken hearts that have just begun

I look around at an empty world
That was once filled with you my beautiful girl
Heartaches are and will be mine
Our love now gone...strained...out of time

My moments...my mind once filled only with you
Our love that is lost now that was all that I knew
Has left the room...I am alone in the chair
Leaving four lonely walls...for me just to stare

An empty heartache replaces my love
This rainy day...teardrops stream from above
When life took you from me...I told you to go
My ears deaf to the scream of how little I know

Silently I watched you my love walk away
My heart crying and numbed on this cold rainy day
I watch as you get smaller...so painfully distant
My tears lost in the rain...not seen but persistent

I don't dry my eyes for each tear I have earned
The fool in my heart...a heart that's not learned
My love now so far away...that just cannot be you
I can't see that you cry...but I know that you do

Tears in the rain...we each have our sad parts
When pride and distrust drills holes in our hearts
And love spills like raindrops onto my shoe
My head looking downward in sadness for you

I know I have hurt you...I have given you pain
I have stumbled...I have faltered this day in the rain
As you walk away crying though you surely don't hear
My heart cries in the cold...rain covers our tears

Sleep well now my love ...yes I told you to go
Tears stinging my eyes I would like you to know
I will hold on to my scars...treasured often the way
This dull day in the rain watching love dim and fade

All that is left now are sorrowful words
Written down sadly...too soft to be heard
Time to regret the things that we have done
Until our days shine again...on this day without sun

    Oh hun, when I read this poem I started to cry, because at some point in my life I've felt everything you said in it. It really touched me and I think you've written it just perfectly!

    Beautiful, just beautiful! Reminded me a bit of Clapton's song 'Tears In Heaven' even though that was for his son. Putting this in my favorites for sure! 5/5
