Two Teardrops

I once knew a little girl
Who opened her heart to me
And shed teardrops of sorrow and glee

Teardrops, two
One for the loved one who was suffering
And one for her, ’cause she was suffering too

Teardrops, two
One for imagining that she wasn’t loved
And one when she realized that she was loved too

I once knew a little girl
Who generously opened her heart to me
She shed two teardrops
One of sorrow and one of glee
Two teardrops that touched me
And turned into three
