Silent Tears My thoughts dwell on Daddy and Lena Each year around this time Anniversaries I'd just as soon forget But they're still in my heart and mind Twenty-six years and two days apart They left us with pain and grief One had no choice; one wanted to go Passage of time gave no relief Letting my heart fill with bitterness I questioned God for the reasons why And refused to find the acceptance That my loved ones had to die But time has answered my questions And sweet peace with God I've found Picturing our loved ones in Heaven And knowing that's where I'm bound My mind is no longer in turmoil From the pain of those many years My heart contains no bitterness And I now cry silent tears Kathleen McCoy EldridgeŠ October 2, 2006 All Rights Reserved "I'm Not Alone"
