Ode to Tears

May 22, 2010
Tears hold truth and tears hold lies
Staining pure colors with darkness
Memories stream forth from each drop
Replacing a loving caress

Tears reflect the clarity of the skies
Contained emotions spill out at last
Reminisce until you are forced to stop
Delicate feelings are no longer masked

Tears follow the sound of lonely cries
Bringing along the comfort of grief
Walking with neither a jump nor hop
Merciful, its moments are brief

Tears come trailing behind pitiful sighs
Arriving after death and after life
But can not be found in a single shop
Leaving behind the faint melody of a fife.
