When My Mother Cries
My mother's tears are raindrops full of emotion
Each tear has a meaning
Every single raindrop is worth a storm
Oh Lord, please never let it form.
She stores the raindrops in heart;
'The Mighty Cloud'.
I can see how hard she tries;
"I won't shed a tear", she lies.
But someday that cloud does burst,
Its then; that day my mother cries,
And down her cheek a raindrop rolls.
She didn't want me to know about the rain;
So, she shut all the windows and doors,
And didn't reveal a single raindrop of her pain.
I will stand a drought;
And live my life dry,
But never again will I let my mother cry.
