Child

of mine...

I will

not

tell you...

not  to cry...

because

this shell...

that held

my soul

has died...

And

your tears...

are

all

the

love

for me

you

can

not

hide....

 

So

cry...

until

your

tears

subside....

And

Then...

just

realize....

I am

here...

still

living...

in

the

place...

your

heart

resides...

 

~~~

 

And

you

can

 see me

in the twinkle

of

your

eyes
