    VALLEY OF TEARS

    I’M OUT HERE ON MY OWN
    JUST TO ROAM AND ROAM
    WHERE IS GOD, AND WHY WAS I BORN?
    SOMEBODY TELL ME, WHY DON’T I HAVE A HOME?

    NEVER KNOWING HAPPINESS
    OR WHAT A SWEET CARESS IS
    LIVING IN THIS VALLEY
    THIS VALLEY OF TEARS

    NO ONE TO COMFORT ME FROM THESES HEARTACHES AND PAINS.
    I DON’T EVEN HAVE SHELTER FROM THE SPITEFUL ELEMENTS, SNOW AND RAIN.
    NO LOVING ARMS TO HOLD ME TIGHT.
    NOTHING OVER MY HEAD, BUT THE STARS AND MOON AT NIGHT.

    JUST A HUG OR A TENDER KISS!
    IT’S THE LOVE THAT I REALLY MISS
    I WANT OUT OF THIS VALLEY!
    I WANT TO STOP THIS MISERY.

    I’VE BEEN HERE SO LONG
    THIS WHOLE STORY SEEMS WRONG
    LIVING IN A PLACE WHERE LOVE DON’T FLOW
    I FEEL LIKE I’M ALREADY IN HELL BELOW

    A HOUSE CAN NEVER EVER BE NO HOME
    IF IT’S A PLACE WHERE CONFUSION ROAMS?
    I RATHER BE OUT HERE STRUGGLING ON MY OWN
    THAN TO LIVE IN A PLACE WHERE CONFUSION ROAM
    I HOPE YOU NEVER EXPERIENCE THE FEARS.
    OUT HERE IN THIS VALLEY OF TEARS........

    WOW!

    I only give credit where it is due. Your poem is extremely deep. I definitely know the feeling of the line, "A HOUSE CAN NEVER EVER BE A HOME." That's soooo true. I am feeling your poem. Very Much.
