My heart aches with

No reason why

Though life is full

These tears I cry

Those who are near

Don’t understand

At times with them

I even stand

I’ve searched and sought

What holds me bound

What weighs my heart

What brings me down

Perhaps it is

A cry from he

Who sits alone

Worse off than me

And wishes life

Were at an end

He could be saved

By a mere friend

But none has he

And so I hear

Of his sad fate

With distant ear

And though I go

Upon my way

Inside a silent

Stone is placed

And so it goes

Day after day

Until my soul

So much doth weigh

Thus when you look

Into my eyes

And sadness see

Don’t be surprised

These tears I cry

And hold within

Will forever be

The tears for him
