Lovers Lonely Tears

Slow rain falls
On mourners there
Upon marble stone
Falls lovers tear

Flowers lay
On fresh opened ground
Petals pink
Strewn all around

The cold earth
Body warm once holds
Lonely heart
Now grief enfolds

He is here
And she is gone
One lover left
To carry on

Teardrops fall
Against marble stone
Love of two
Now one alone

So sad...and so touching. You conveyed a sense of lonliness so clearly. Thank you for sharing this.
