If a tear could tell a story
 

If a tear could tell a story would it

Preface scope and aims, would it tell of

Second chances or never love again?

Would it credit former lovers, thanking all

Those who took part, would it spill the beans

On others writ in blood of broken hearts?
 

If a tear could tell a story would it

Tell of nights alone, of wasted moons, of

Popped balloons and heartbreak telephones?

Would it tell of sweet attention, that turned into

Neglect, when heads were turned and bridges

Burned and love ran out of breath?
 

If a tear could tell a story would it

Concentrate on truth, would it write a heartfelt

Chapter on my long wait here for you?

Would it find the word forgiveness, a useful route

To love, would it write a dry-eyed ending?

Oh yes, I think it would.
