    One Million Tears

    Come here with me and lay your sorrows atop my chest

    Let me bare your painful burdens until the day I die

    My arms will cloak and protect you from the demons of your past

    I can be your refuge through the storm

    Allow me to cleanse my soul with your tears

    All the while helping you to see the silver lining around clouds of gray

    Can I hold you gently as you sleep and pray that your tomorrow will eradicate shadows of today?

    Can I steal a touch of heaven's sunshine and tenderly nestle it against your lips

    Prompting the smile which will set the skies ablaze

    Can we float away in your river of tears setting sail to happiness unknown?

    Today you cried your millionth teardrop I was there to catch it

    Cradling it in my heart knowing that because of love those tears will fade away

    Into a distant memory of childish nightmares

    All we have is our present me with you and you with me

    Let us wish upon a star that joy will consume our being and the countless tears shed will become a figment of our imaginations.

    Love your style! Like your use of imagery. A very good read.

    pretty good man i usually stick to the basic rhyme scheme maybe i'll try something more your stlye

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
