I’ll Take My Tears To Bed!


I’ll take my tears to bed  

and shed them on my pillow.

The morning sun will blaze;

an orb of brilliant yellow.


Will its shine be bright enough

to dry my tears of pain?

Or shall I rise and weep

for the innocent that was slain?


No morning sun can cleanse

the muddy hearts of men

nor kill the pain of grief

brought on by an act of sin.

    • Thank you Robin and I do apologize for taking so long to get back to you. It is inexcusable, I know! I have smacked my own hand over my tardiness in responding especially to such a compliment as you’ve given me on this one.

      Believe me, your continued support is appreciated!

    • I thank you as well Dom and I also ask your forgiveness for my tardiness in responding to your comment! I do appreciate all comments especially ones that are complimenting me on my writing.

      Again, I thank you Dom!


    • Believe me, I do understand HLJ. Who could not have problems in this day and age especially if you are sensitive to the plight of others and quite actually care about people as opposed to being an asshole?

      Stay strong man, stay strong!

      Thank you for your comment HLJ!
