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!
