Love Poems

Tears to Cry

I love her, but she hates me;
I still don't know the reason why
And I'm too shocked and stunned and numb
To find the tears to cry.

What I've done she just won't tell me;
Is she trying to make me cry?
How hurt does one man have to be
To find the tears to cry?

She's never held me in her arms
Or looked deep in my eye
She'd see so much love burning there
Along with tears to cry.

But maybe it should be over
And I'll tell the reason why:
It seems all I can give her
Are just those tears to cry.

I sleep, I dream and when I wake
I'm crushed but yet still dry
For I'm still too empty and too numb
To find the tears to cry.

Awake, all I can do is sit
And count the seconds go by
And worry for there'll be oceans
When I find the tears to cry.

Outside the rain comes pummelling down,
So much for just one sky;
But I know it won't match the torrents
When I find the tears to cry.

I wish that I could fall asleep
And dream until I die
For life holds nothing for me now
Except the tears to cry.
