In every tear,
There are thousands of words.
Like a snowflake,
Each on is unique.
But unlike a snowflake.
The tears have faces.
Sometimes they smile.
Sometimes they frown.
With one tear,
I could write endless mounts,
But it doesn't matter.
Since when do my words count?

I lift my lids and all is born again.

You seem to be very good at writing endings to your poetry. I loved this, and I loved the feeling in the pit of my stomach at the hopeless last few lines of such a beautiful, dreamy poem.
