Tears (A Poem Fragment)

Tears, pensive, sad yet full of joy
Not hot, burning blisters across my heart
Not icy cold blades of hell to scar my soul
Just warm, loving trickles from where they start

Not driven by the madness of the beast
No torturous agony do they bring
Wondrous tears sliding down my cheeks
From glorious love do they spring

    Like a creek it then flows like a river...down and soak the emotion
    And spring of smiles greening on cheek, only if tears came from happiness
    Even if it came from sadness, salty eyes will move for brighter smiles

    So tender a feeling and so beautiful an expression.

    Tears are not for sorrow but we have the tears of joy specially overwhelming joy.
