Drying Your Tears

Tear drops fall from your hazel eyes
and my heart stops a beat at their sight.
I pull you close to me,
try to take the pain from you,
make it my own.
My cheek lays against yours
and your tears burn my face
as I whisper,
"Darling, it will be all right."

My tears blend with your own,
your pain, now mine;
our tears become one
as they fall in rivers on the sheets.

I dry your tears with gentle kisses,
soft upon your face,
shelter you from pain
in the recesses of my love.
Our bed becomes a chalice
and we drink in each others sorrow
finding salvation in each others arms;
pain washed away giving rise to passion
till we forget there ever were tears.
