"If I could be any part of you,
I'd be your tears;
To be conceived in your heart,
Born in your eyes,
Live on your cheeks,
And die on your lips."

Drink the water from your cup
And know you taste my tears.
See my blood there on the floor
And know you see my fears.
Hear the music in the air
And know that it's my screams.
See the pieces falling around you
And know they were my dreams.
Feel the ground fall away
And know that's how I start my days.
Touch upon the pain I feel
And know that that's what stays.
Reach your hand out to me
And know that I won't take it.
Try your best to get to me
And know that you won't make it.
Close your eyes and long for me
And know that I felt that way too.
Multiply all that for the rest of your life
And know that's how I loved you.

The author's comments:
At first, I started writing this about what I'm feeling about the current person in my life - or not so much, as is the case - but then I realized that it's more about my Mom than me. It saddens me, but it probably describes how she felt about her marriage. .
