I weep for years that passed and come,
I weep for time,
Though it doesn't weep for me,
I weep in sleep,
When sleep weeps without a dream;
I weep for love and with love,
Because it does not reign on me;
I weep with aging trees in autumn,
And with leaves close to decay;
I weep much like the ocean heaves
Its might on some solitary beach;
But I don't weep because I'm sad,
Nor because I'm overlapsed with joy,
I weep because I am alive,
Because, though joy and sorrow are intertwined,
Life has given me a voice,
A voice to speak of who I am.

Weeping for love of life!
I absolutely love this...especially the line "I weep because I am alive!"

At my vantage point and age, I appreciate every day more and more, and weep that I didn't realize how precious life was when I was younger.

Nice work!
