A Single Tear


A single tear drops from my eye.
The death of a child is on my mind.
A feeling so strong its impossible to ignore
A piece of a puzzle I am trying to restore.
A smile so sweet and a laugh so precious, no one could turn away.
Such little time and so much to say.
So many lives I know she touched.
Isn't it amazing someone so young and small could give so much.

    Very good writing...the death of little ones is sad. Do you think God takes them? The answer is in my poem, 'True Comfort'. Thank you... (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
