Tears that I Shed

47 0 0

Water droplets falling down 

Upon my blackened gown

The sky grows bleak and gray

Indicating a dark, sad day

Of mourning and despair

Life is so unfair

Why did you go away?

Why couldn't I be the one to pay,

For the sin we committed?

The sin of forbidden love

Between two people of different classes

The love we felt came in flashes

Not caring if our social stances clashes

Death took you quickly and quietly

Here I visit your grave with the rain falling lightly

The rain...the rain

The rain are the tears that I shed for you
