Tears can mend a broken heart,
a contrite spirit it may impart.
I don’t know where to end or start,
as a person close to me depart.
Forgive me for the lack of words.
It pierces my heart like a thousand swords.
Tears should flow to get rid of the pain,
as I try to recover from this painful disdain.
Now I need to stand and wipe my tears away
But in my heart you will continue to stay
For now, I could not write in verse or prose
But in time, I will once again stand and rose.
