Teardrops At The Bottom Of A Well


Tiny dropp of purity
Small dose of harsh reality
A sign of spirituality
Can be both good and bad

Tiny dropp of shame
Reality of fame
Expression of true pain
Sometimes misunderstood

Tiny dropp of cleansing
A sign the heart is mending
Depression is descending
But hope that yours are good

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
