Your Tears For Me
I shared with you my cup of sorrows
And as my friend you drank it deep
I did not know the pain it caused you
Until I saw your tears for me.
I shared my heart, I shared my soul
I needed courage to fend off defeat
You said a prayer for my deliverance
And offered up your tears for me.
I was sad and feeling helpless
Full of heaviness, hurt and grief
You took my pain upon your shoulders
The strain revealed in your tears for me.
My soul refreshed while yours was broken
Your heart aching, mine at ease
It seems unjust that you be burdened
And caused to shed your tears for me.
No one but a friend so loving
Would consent to set me free
By letting go all reservation
And embracing your tears for me.
By this alone I know you love me
By this alone is my soul complete
Because you weep when I am hurting
And don't hold back your tears for me.
