I Saw You Crying
I saw you crying
All alone in the corner where you sat
"If I said these tears were not for me I'd be lying
But it is not just for me that I am crying," you said.
This world is filled with heartbreak
Just look into someone's eyes for more than just a second
Way down in that deep reflective pool you'll see the ache
And through it all we're still connected
Empathy is a powerful force
But love is even more profound
Experiencing them together is no easy task and yet they both reinforce
That goodness still reigns here on the devil's battleground
As hard as it is to watch those you love hurt
It's harder for them and you'll ease the burden
Don't ever forget what that treasure is worth
It's the kind that lives on when all else seems uncertain
It's the kind that keeps giving when your life is done
But it only earns more interest when it's freely shared
It's a priceless gift that comes back to you but worthwhile for anyone
It multiplies for generations to come all because you cared
Today while I was crying
I knew these tears were not mine alone that I shed
Because I thought of you and your love as my tears were drying
"Soon we'll both be smiling instead of crying," I said.

Sometimes it is not anything tangible, but an act that communicates love best. Take that into consideration when giving from the heart to a loved one. Also, recognize why love offered may not be felt.
