House of Sighs

House of Sighs
I live in a house of sighs
For my family recently had to say good bye
We do not weep, we do not cry
Because we are the stoic type

I have tried and I try
But I don’t know why
I cannot cry

So I sigh and sigh
As a month goes by
And together we sigh and sigh
As our eyes remain dry

We live and we die inside
Preserving this white lie
(The others did not and will not see the signs
They are blind
This deception is our crime)

We live, we die, we lie
But we do not cry
In this house of sighs
The expression of grief is not limited to tears.
