Your Tear

I watched silently
today as you cried
releasing all the pain
that you kept inside
You couldn't take anymore
no matter how you tried
You let go of everything
that you wanted to hide

I wasn't certain
but now it's clear
You aren't as happy
as you seemed to appear
You are lost, scared
and surrounded in fear
You didn't have to say a word
I saw it all in your tear

I saw your guilt
your hurt, your pain
I heard the thoughts
that are hard to explain
The thoughts that drive you
almost to being insane
I tried to dry your tears
but they still fell like rain

You keep this to yourself
and you push me away
I can't promise tomorrow
that it'll all be okay
but hear me out
listen to what I say
You weren't the only one crying
I cried with you today
