A single tear rolls down my cheek,
For no more can I shed.
My heart feels shredded and torn,
From all the times I've bled.

I long for freedom from my burdens,
And the heavy weight they are.
I gaze up into the night sky,
Dreaming of a place afar.

I long to sail away freely;
To glide upon the skies,
But for now I must stay,
With pain etched in my eyes.
