Why must These tears fall,
crying, crying, into the night –
missing… missing… we have lost them,
lost them all.
Wheel of time,
you’ve hardly turned before they’re gone.
Turn back, turn back and restore,
restore to me mine!
I will hold you, hold you ever,
in thought, in prayer, in sighing breath,
my child, my sister, father, mother, brother, lover —
here, here in my heart living ever.
Here in my heart,
And still I cry!
