Tears Don't Stop Time

A tear rolls down my eye
Small little drop
Comes down my cheek
Time won't stop
Even if I cry a little
I don't wanna have no body to see my tears
But time won't stop and I can't move
Because the pain is worse
Than any thing I have ever done before
Time still goes on
And I gotta go before they notice
so I take all my strength
And walk
Walk any place but here
My brain says to run
But my body can only walk
Time won't stop too let me out
Of this place
And have tears roll down my face without
Any one noticing
So I walk as fast as I can
Ignoring all around me
When I get there the strongest Man I know
Is lying on the bed
With white sheets
Flowers every where
Mom's crying
Cousins bowing their head for respect
Doctors and Nurses trying to comfort
Sister's screaming in sadness
I can't handle this
Because two hours ago non of this happend
Two hours ago
Their was an accedent
An hour ago I was told what happend
An hour is what it took to get here
An hour
A minute to late
The nurses said
Tears roll down my cheek
Time couldn't even stop to see Daddy's last breaths
Hear his last words
Time couldn't stop
And It still won't
I run out of the room
Tears threatining to come out
I go strait to the chaple
In the mosterous building
I hear my some of my cousins fallowing me
So I run faster
And Kneel down and pray
If daddy couldn't come back
He was a good man
Please let him into Heaven
So I know he was safe
My tears are comming out now and I don't
Try to stop them
Because they still can't stop time
and If it did it wasn't enough
