Weep, weep within me,

 

Weep, weep within me, darling. There's release

In tears, in sorrow, in love that brings such pain.

You live inside of me, so rest in peace.

I know that like a sea you cannot cease

To crash against my heart, again, again.

Weep, weep within me, darling. There's release

 

From all the cruelty of your short lease,

The unimagined hell of the self-slain.

You live inside of me, so rest in peace

 

I was cut off from you and could not piece

Together bows that lay beyond your rain.

Weep, weep within me, darling. There's release

 

In knowing that your love, like magic fleece,

Will warm me through the winters that remain.

You live inside of me, so rest in peace.

 

My love for you, dear mother, will increase

As more and more your will I will unchain.

Weep, weep within me, darling: there's release.

You live inside of me, so rest in peace.
