the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 51
cry if you must

tears were one thing that God made

for you to release when victory fades


tears were the one thing that you could release

to take away the pain and bring you peace


i watched and stood and saw you cry

what could i give to make them dry


to see your smile shine once more

the beauty of joy like before


i could not understand your pain

yet you feel it time and again


what can i say that will heal the hurt

what can i do to rid the dirt


if tears were for crying

then so it must be true

that those that are dying

have nothing left to do


even without a lifetime

to look ahead and run

the race ends there

under the shearing sun


i lost my words to say

i cannot comfort you

but only stand to tell

whatever that is true


if you give up now

then those tears are wasted

cry as you will

the hardship you have tasted


but if you give up now

then there is nothing more

for me to hold on

and to adore


yet if you give up now

tomorrow is but a pain

but cry if you must

and try harder again
