never be the reason for your lover’s tears

without the touch of lip to heal their pain

for tears on coming to their grave unknown

take with them the lover loving you in vain


never leave your lover’s tears

to trail alone along their face

but in your heart bear their pain

and love them with a gentle grace


do not permit your lover’s tears

leave fire upon their soul

soft soothe for her her darkest fears

and by loving him make him whole
