INVISIBLE TEARS

Invisible tears that I'll never show                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Swell up in my eyes and eventually flow.

From this feeling inside that's scared to emerge, can't even                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      explain it in so many ways.

For my Little girl she will never forget, I never understood the                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  ripple effect.

Invisible tears that you'll never see, easily get lost in this                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    concrete sea.

Chaos all around when it's peace that I seek                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               My freedom is lost, hopes fade away, wondering how long will I stay?

Invisible tears that you will never know, from all of the things I will never let go.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            From the lives lost while I was away, wish could have had one more thing to say. 

To the missing photos, I will never get to post...                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            To all the memories that should have meant the most.

Many tears fall freely, but never hit my cheek..                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                I hope you never seek these perilous tears of which I speak.
