The Flowing Tears


During the dark,
sitting in the park,
performing the silent prayer,
asking the lord for much more care,
i saw drops of water in motion,
and called them into question,
'Who art thou and why dost thou flow? '
'We art tears,
and we cometh hither to maketh thou hear,
that thou can get us shed, whence thy loving ones maketh thou sad',
the drops of water in motion said.
Replied I, 'why should i groan,
whence my loved ones art the reason for my moan,
there is no reason why i should lament,
if they art unable to return sentiment 'gainst my sentiment,
they don't deserves these tears,
if they don't hold me dear.
And if i am dear to them,
as they art to me,
they won't bring into being,
the things that will cause me suffering,
and if their actions maketh me weep,
it is because the good wherein i am unable to see,
so i ask thou why shalt i shed tears,
as the ones who hold me dear,
will feel very bad,
seeing me all sad.'
Tears said, 'from the aforementioned,
i cometh to a conclusion,
that tears art all vain,
as nothing from it that thou can gain.'

Being on the grass,
beside my loved one's carcass,
sitting on the ground,
making spiritual sound,
asking the lord for his salvation,
i saw drops of water in motion,
and questioned, 'Who art thou and why dost thou flow? '
They said, 'We art tears,
and we cometh hither to maketh thou hear,
that thou can get us shed,
whence thy loving ones art dead.'
Replied I, 'why should i yammer,
when my loved one hast goneth to meet thy maker,
instead i should cheer,
as the one whom we hold dear,
is forsaken from all the worldly pain,
and is free to play his own game,
being able to fly high above in the skies,
far away from all the worldly cries,
and if from above he doth see me sad,
i know for sure that he will feel bad,
for him i should always wear a cheer,
as for him this is the burden i should always bear.'
Tears said, 'from the aforementioned,
i cometh to a conclusion,
that tears art all vain,
as it cause nothing but great pain.'

That out of dust created man,
