March of Tears

This entry is one of my favorites because it is dedicated to everyone affected by the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on 11 March, 2011. I send my thoughts and prayers to all the victims, families, workers, and more who helped with the recovery of the affected areas and people. This was originally written on March 11, 2016.

Despite words never reaching

And tears never breaching

Memories of that day never fail

To return me to the veil

Of no tomorrow

Routine was followed that day

Sleeping on opposite sides of the bed

Cursing each other with words of lead

We never got tired of ripping each other away

Why did you stay?

Why did I stay?

We weren’t strong enough maybe?

Did we stay together just for the street cred?

Or were pieces of love lingering instead?

Finally the day came for you to leave me, baby

But ocean waves pulled you from me for eternity

Grey skies and dark waves

Erase stories never finished, stories that we crave

In a March of tears

In a March of tears

Your soul with its own story drifts to the skies

Leaving me alone to face a new sunrise

Days turn into weeks

While routine hides the pain and tears

I sleep in a bed heated by nightmares

Cursing myself with words of regret in shrieks

Why did you go?

Why didn’t I go?

We weren’t strong enough anymore

Oh, we stayed just for the treats

But pieces of love definitely existed

Cause when the day came for you to leave, baby

The ocean waves left behind your pieces of me

Grey skies, dark waves

So many lost stories

In a March of tears

In a March of tears

Your soul drifts to the skies

Leaving me lost in a world of despair

Now 5 years on

My tears are gone

Still I cling to what you left behind

Since you are still stuck in my mind

But for your sake, I will soldier on (soldier on)

Through the March of tears

Grey skies, dark waves

So many lost stories

In a March of tears

In a March of tears

Your soul drifts to the skies

Leaving me lost in a world of despair

But soldier on (soldier on)

Through the March of tears

But soldier on (soldier on)

Through the March of tears
