Tears Keep Falling

Had to find a way to get the words out.
I cried last night like,
I haven't cried in a while,
I laid my head down on my pillow,
And welcomed the bitter salty tears,
Of sorrow, hurt and fear.

The fear of losing my family,
The sorrow of seeing my mother cry,
The hurt of knowing,
I have done lost some part of me,
I may never get back.

The tears slide,
First one by one,
Then the dam breaks,
And they don't take turns falling anymore,
They all rush to the edge and jump.
