How many tears can the ocean hold? What the history books Don't tell you is that The Indian Ocean was formed By thousands of years Of tears that flowed from The fishermen of Sumatra. Their pain was unbearable. Their poverty was immeasurable. Little to eat, little to wear, Little to learn, too little work. Abandoned and forsaken Deep within their broken silent hearts An echo was heard, the little earth quaked - As it could no longer hold their tears.
Tens of thousands of tears overflowed Deadly waves, crashing ashore Sweeping their pain out from under Their tattered rugs of impoverishment - Out onto the front pages of newspapers worldwide. Finally, the world took notice of their tears: They sent care packages of food, clothing, shelter, schools, and cash. They sent care packages of compassion, mercy, tolerance, and love. The tears of the fisherman brought new life to tens of thousands in pain. Salty, salty, sea water, tears of the fallen. Salty, salty, sea water, heals the wounds of grief. What the history books don't tell you is How many tears can a human heart hold Before it cracks beneath the surface From the strain and pain and swells open And learns how to love.
