Oh canyon deep

Oh mountain steep

Can anybody hear me weep?

I am but a shadow

I am but a speck

I am but a fleck

In the universe trek

My void is so big

So deep

So wide

It could swallow the universe

And have room inside

I weep for the child

I weep for the girl

I weep for the bride who beamed with pride

And when my tears are all dried up then

I breathe and sigh and weep again

For the dreams that were

For the promises made

For the vase that broke

For the smiling babe

I weep for what is and what was before

Just when I thought there was nothing more

That happiness is about to begin,

I breathe and sigh and weep again.
