I Cried Again

Teardrops fell the night you said
I love you dear and you were wed
I watched you while you held his hand
Then bowed my head and cried again

   I cried again when I reached home
   There set your picture all alone
   I thought of things that might have been
   And bowed my head and cried again

I took your letters from the shelf
Then read them aloud just to myself
And just before I reached the end
I turned away and cried again

I thought of love I’d been denied
And how to hold it I had tried
And of dreams that we had shared
And days gone by when you cared

   Now here’s the reason why I say
   That I must throw your things away
   For they would always bring my pain
   And then I’d have to cry again
   And then I’d only cry again
