Reason Crying In The Night (poem)

Updated on February 1, 2015

Another reason crying in the night

Another scent of tears now fills the air

Because no care was there to set it right


Somewhere a hand is reaching out of sight

From unknown oceans of its own despair

Another reason crying in the night


Its cries for help are met by words polite

An emptiness beyond what it could bear

Because no care was there to set it right


It searched the darkness hoping for some light

When something in its madness caught its stare

Another reason crying in the night


They put some fleeting meaning to their plight

And dreamed an end to all of its affair

Because no care was there to set it right


And in their spawn came flames of woe so bright

With unknown oceans other souls now share

Another reason crying in the night

Because no care was there to set it right

      Tears fall for many reasons for happiness sadness and anger whichever one the individual is affected by can be forgiving. A feeling of loneliness when crying at night, you have shared a lovely poem.
