PEARLS ARE TEARS - E. Martin Pedersen (Italy)



-         E. Martin Pedersen (Italy)

I've always wanted

the dream of my life

now I have some money

from my aunt who died

a dear old woman

no children of her own

I was her favorite

after my mother gone

so old and feeble

she'd lost her mind

death was a blessing

hers and mine

I could finally buy something

I'd always desired

beautiful pearls

arranged in a line

each one a tear

I still have to shed

for my favorite aunt ...
