~~ When Two Teardrops Touch ~~
The stars of Heaven shatter, falling far and wide;
These tears of heaven scatter, and in the heart abide.
In the night they travel, streaking through the sky;
Showing me their fleeting life, as I quickly see them die.
The dying embers weaken, drifting upon the wind;
Piercing the veil of shadows, from the tempest they transcend
In your eyes I see those stars, as they fall in tears;
Just like so many I have shed, throughout the passing years.
Our tears are born of the Heavens, born of angels, ether, and such;
So how can there be sorrow, when two such teardrops touch?
