Drip and drop

Tear drops in the rain,
Why are you forgotten?
Drip drop, drip drop
From where comes empty pain?
Tears by pain begotten.

Tear drops in the ocean,
Why does it all seem so wide?
Drip drop, drip drop
This steady rising emotion.
When pain and emptiness coincides?

Tear drops falling uncaringly
Or is the salt still upon your lips?
Drip drop, drip drop
Why are you crying little bumble bee?
And make the earth of your sorrow sip.

Tear drops flow like life’s blood
Where do we go from here?
Drip drop, drip drop
When walls rise in like the flood.
And the tears become laced with fear.

Drip drop, drip drop,
Drip drop, as time stops
Drip drop, drip drop
Who has wiped away your little teardrop?
No more to drip and drop
