Sighed Tears

Crystal tears fall from my eyes,
made of pain I held inside,
took some years for me to cry,
shook my head and simply sighed.

Shook my head and simply sighed,
as each year flew past my time,
within me, pieces had died,
every time I failed to climb.

Every time I failed to climb,
motivation was declined,
turning goals to bitter lime,
newfound fears fogging my mind.

Newfound fears fogging my mind,
till my heart transformed old sights,
making bad thoughts become kind,
gathered tears light up quite bright.

Gathered tears light up quite bright,
my future will always rise,
happiness inside me shines,
crystal tears fall from my eyes.
