I stand silently and watch you cry,

My loving wife in black.

And I stand forever out of view,

For I never can come back.

 

I've watched you every single day,

And seen those days turn into years.

I've seen how grief has eaten you,

Like a cancer of the tears.

 

Your sky is grey and darker now,

Your heart is spent and dried.

I never wished your life to end,

When it was ‘I' that died.

 

I'm sorry that you hurt so much,

And I can't comfort you.

I know the pain that burns inside,

Because I feel it too.

 

Know that I can hear your words,

And that I still love you.

And though I may be out of reach,

Know that the dead cry too.
