  • In the dark of sleepless night
    my gray heart throbs
    to the creak of my rocking chair

    silent sobs, aching throat

    Tears swell my eyes
    and overflow,
    drip down and down,
    fill a sea of sorrows

    bitter tears, gray heart

    In the light of morning
    with heavy limbs, groggy head
    I turn his photo to the wall

    silent sobs, aching throat
    bitter tears, gray heart
