Tears are falling this evening for a memory has dropped by
No matter how hard I try not to I can not help but cry
The images are so vivid that I shake all over with fear
Painful words and threats are playing back to me most clear
Memories can be so painful that they pierce you to the heart
Just when you think its over another one begins to start
Sometimes I can fight them nobly and put them in their place
At other times I must surrender and give to them their space.
Tonight I cannot avoid them so I am off to meditate
Hoping to replace these image with those I contemplate
Before the ocean in my mind I throw my worries with care
And hope some kindly wave will take these hurts somewhere
Like a child who has been beaten I am shivering endlessly
So i'm begging all the creatures to come and comfort me
IT doesn't take too much to help me dry my many tears.
Just a caring and kindly word can help soften those years.
