Tears

Tears of joy…
that raise our spirits
beyond expectations.
Love, romance, admiration.

Graduation bells,
wedding bells,
bells that toll
just for thee.  
These tears are
sweet as can be.

Tears of sadness…
that stain our face.
Disappointment, tragedy,
illness, loneliness, death.

It all depends on the taste
of the tears, some are sweet
and some are bitter.

A cross we must all bear.
We may ask…
is life really fair?

Tears are a way of
coping with emotions
beyond our control.

No matter how young
or old, tears will be
ours forever to behold.

There’s nothing sweeter
than a new born baby’s
cry and nothing sadder
than a hearse as it
slowly passes by.
 
From the beginning of
humanity, enough tears
have been shed to fill
an ocean.

Tears…
the flood continues.
