I'll Cry For You

I bring your shivering body closer to my heart
I tell you everything’s okay, when we both know, it really not
You try to be strong, but I know it’s hard
I know you feel it though, the beating of my heart
I know you can see the ruby tears that seep from it.
There’s so much pain in your eyes, swelled up in the form of water
Please, just let it all go, let the pain go
Free yourself, let the tears flow
Or else, the pain will stay caged in your eyes
And every time someone looks into them, they will see the painful pit
You’re stuck in
I scream as I look him in the eyes
But as I look into them, all that’s there is a black pit, where his soul used to be
Its okay I whisper, since you won’t let yourself cry, I’ll cry for you
My tears are yours, and so I let them fall free
He sits cold before me. As my sense of touch weakens.
I hold him, and I let his tears roll down my cheeks,
His body shivers more
I know you’re afraid
But we’ll always be together I say.
I hold his face up, and I see the tears roll down his cheeks
But I’m still crying out for him
As god takes me back home
But sometime my son, we’ll be together again
