Melanie C. Campos ~ MahTame

YOUR TEARS WILL COME, MY FRIEND…

War buddies, war memories, war
Subduing the mourning tears way
Keeping the nightmares and gore
Fresh in the warrior’s mind today

When the tears just won’t come
And blocked by the dams of pride
Memorializing friends and family
Such deep sadness dwells inside

Misted eyes and lumps in throat
Shaken feelings riveting the soul
Such watery tears held in its moat
To weep for our loss is our goal

Someday my friend, you shall cry
A cleansing from death’s shadow
Sorrow’s grip will answer the why
And release those tears to let it go
