Never think my dear friends
That the absence of tears
Means nobody is crying at all
For there are invisible tears
That don't come through
The naked and weary eyes
But from the very bottom
Of a broken heart!

Tears disguised as blood
And run through the veins,
Causing in its transparent journey
An uncontrollable and deep pain
Which turns one's life into
A real living hell!

Many times I deeply felt
Like crying and drop real tears
But I couldn't because of pride
While I was dying inside!

Time slowly passed,
Overcoming my agony
When I regained my strength
And moved forwards
In search of new horizons
By keeping my hope and faith
And thanking the One above!

Precious moments
That together we fully enjoyed
And through the passing of time,
Made me madly fall in love with you!

Every time we met
It seemed the Heavens
Were wide-opened for us
When drawing the dancing floor,
Those well coordinated steps
Made us look like real champs,
Catching the attention
Of all of those around!

The days seemed so long
And the nights so short
But every single chance we had,
We made sure to fully enjoy
When I felt my heart broken
Every time I saw you go!

What seemed to be so real
Was actually a dream
When your heart belonged
To someone else who patiently
Was waiting for your arrival
Not too far back home!

Now here I am wondering
If you ever loved me
Like I truly did love you
With such an intensity
And with so much passion
That you are still in my thoughts
While invading my dreams
Every single night!
