    MANY TIMES TEARS COME EASY, WHETHER I AM AWAKE OR IN MY BED
    IS IT BECAUSE SOMEONE LEFT ME OR AM I AFRAID
    DID SOMEONE PASS ON THAT I REALLY MISS, OR WAS SOMEONE BORN AND IT WAS COMPLETE BLISS
    CAN THESE TEARS BE CONTAINED?
    OR ROLL DOWN MY FACE AND MAKE SALTY STAINS
    HOW LONG DOES ONE TEAR TAKE TO FALL, BEFORE I REALIZE REAL PAIN
    ALL I DO IS CRY
    DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY?
    IS ANYONE REACHING TO FREE ME OF THIS LONELINESS
    OR WILL MY SOUL STILL SEARCH FOR REAL WHOLENESS
    ALL I DO IS CRY
    CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHY?
    WILL THE SADNESS CONTINUE OR WILL QUESTIONS STILL ARISE?
    AS DAYS GO BY, WILL I HIDE OR SINK INTO DESPAIR
    WHEN THE TEARS DRY, WILL I FEEL SAVED BY GRACE
    OR WILL THEY CONTINUE TO FLOW, LIKE I HAVE NO ONE TO FACE
    WHEN FOLKS GAZE MY WAY, CAN THEY SEE THE TEARS
    OR DO I APPEAR TO THEM AS IF I HAVE TOO MANY FEARS
    MANY SAY THAT TIME HEALS ALL WOUNDS
    DOES THAT MEAN PAIN WILL BE OVER SOON?
    ALL IS DO IS CRY
    DOES ANYONE SEE THE TEARS AND ASK ME WHY?

    So many questions, so many tears!
    Some answers come and go
    as do the years!

    Heartfelt scribe, Sister Drea!
