Crying

The tears are always there

Trickles of water running

Down my face

I don't ever dare

Make a sound but

The tears are always there

I hide it as best I can

I put on a smile

It's all a sham

But

The tears are always there

They never leave

Won't go away

Not even for

Less than a day

You know I'm there

You don't look

It's the tell tale sniffs

That gives me away

For

The tears are always there
