The force of an ocean wave you can hear,
but not the cries of a single tear?
The heart's own expression... the tear,
a wet mark, a streak, a stain the only witness here...
a drop of water running from pain.
But does the pain of a heart's many tears link together
to drive the oceans waves we hear?
If so... then voice my pain, single tear...
force the waves against the shore
and in not a tender way give voice
to the heart's small, single tear.
