Shadow Of His Tears

Lost amongst the shadows

a mournful soul does weep,

lost is his only reason to live

for him there is no sleep.


He sits alone in darkness

just him and God above,

he crys a tear of lonliness

God's taken his only sorce of love.


The skies have turned a bitter grey

as he faces all his fears,

how can he keep on living

without his wife of many years.


She took his heart when she died

and now his soul is setting sail,

beyond the shadow of his tears

leaving only a broken shell.
