I Saw An Elephant Cry

I saw an elephant cry
and I know why
he swayed from side to side
reaching out to touch
a memory of long ago
a grassy plain
and running free
his soul mate by his side
only a memory
but elephants never forget
what’s in their hearts
he grabbed the tail
of one of his mates
and he sighed
this is his life
and so it goes
but I know why
I saw an elephant cry
