We Weep For Ourselves

I remember what a wise old bloke to me once said
They weep for themselves those who weep for the dead
The sorrow in our sense of loss we expel in our tears
Though grieving in some it does linger for years
Few do go through life without bearing some cross
And we all do weep for our own sense of loss
But the dead never wake from their eternal sleep
And they cannot hear when for them we do weep
We weep for a dear friend from our life ever gone
Whilst life all around us as usual goes on
And though grief from the mind is slow to fade away
That time is the best healer does seem true to say
To me years ago a wise old bloke said
We weep for ourselves when we weep for the dead.
