Army Mom’s Safe Haven

TEARS OF MY HEART

The tears of my heart fall deeply within
Always with me, silently formed.
Sorrows compounded year after year.

Loss of so many from childhood to now;
Parents, siblings, and friends,
Dreams and high hopes faded and dim.

Sighs and sobs echo in my ears
Smile on my face, laughter from my mouth
Tears of my heart kept out of sight.
