Get Rid Of The Advertisements

I too have tears
 
I too have tears that count backwards the day’s
Longing to fill the pool from which they came
Pining life’s first slow, peaceful waterways
Before even, life arose and took flame.
I had gardens in my heart that, was stocked
With fruit trees and flowers of every kind
With dew drops dripping off the bowers rocked
Before, even tears from the depths entwined.
I too had tears that count backwards the day’s
That has seen gardens turned to rubble and dust
Tears that have laid waste and made commonplace
Much I see tangled in weeds - choking distrust.
I had gardens in my heart that, was stocked
With climbers climbing balustrades atop
But now love, their weeping all of them knocked
As though Jack Frost, taken an axe to chop.
I too have tears that count backwards the day
’s but looks like teary days are here to stay.
