A Tear
Author: Clive B Ringshall


In these tears are stories untold,
In each tear as it falls to the ground
They run down your face on a road not yet made,
Tears flow passes your nose,
On a cheek full of pours,
Tears fall on your lips giving a funny old taste,
In these tears I see your heart beat in every drop,
Tears tell so much about you and today,
I can see in your tears if your happy or sad,
As I touch each tear a diamond appears,
A diamond of your life and memories to unfold,
As I touch each tear closer we become,
Tears of sadness they come and they go,
Tears of sadness you hide all to well,
Tears of joy they never leave your eye,
Tears of joy there so salty to taste,
Tears of happiness can cover your face,
Tears of smiles can run on for miles,
Tears that show love are a wonder to see,
In these tears of my life Iíll let you become,
Apart of me so you too can see.
