The Tears Won't Come Back

You have been away for too long
Thought I would die
Without you, I was a lone kid
I was useless,
And so you left me for dead
After using me
You walked away
Said you wouldn't come back

I cried for you
All night
I was weeping hoping it was just a bad dream
Because I loved you
And I missed you so much
I wanted you to come wipe those tears
So my my face and heart could clear
I almost killed my self

But time heals all wounds
Now the tears don't flow anymore
I am happy
I picked my shattered pieces
Put them back together
Loved again and has no pain
And those tears I shed,
Won't ever come back again
