Teardrops And Raindrops


It’s so hard
To tell
Raindrops from teardrops

When you’re cryin’ in the rain

Do you wipe away
A raindrop
That’s fallen from the sky

When you’re cryin’ in the rain

Or do you wipe away
A tear
Fallen… from your eye

It’s not only by
The seasoning
of saline alone

When you’re cryin’ in the rain

It’s not only by
The reasoning
That each one of us has known

That you know it’s not
The issue
From the sky

And you know
It’s from both
Your heart, and from your eye

For when you’re
Truly cryin’
in the rain

You’ll taste the tears
And feel like dying
From the pain

It’s so hard…so, so hard
To tell
The raindrops from teardrops

When you’re alone…
Alone cryin’…
…Alone cryin’ in the rain…

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
