Teardrop

Oh shy teardrop, don’t swell in my eyes,
your grace will damp my fragile dreams…
Don’t plunge on my lap to be comforted
nor show yourself to be teased.

I discern you want to divulge your story,
I know you want to get wiped;
Yet please hold your soft emotions
keep them hidden and tied.

For the world will only chortle at you
so keep your pain unseen…
Nor will destiny change its route,
nor will change, what has already been.

So conceal yourself , hide and cry
in a forgotten dark corner of the world,
so conceal yourself, hide and cry
let not your sadness unfurl…

So please don’t fall in my lap to be comforted
conceal yourself, hide and cry…
