We Must Shed Tears Poem by Christine Natale


We must shed tears
For all the times
Our lives confront us
With broken lines
And leave us faceless
Against a wall
And force us to wander
In spaceless halls.

We must shed tears
For sunless dawns
And loveless voices
And tuneless songs,
For all the shadows
Of childhood ghosts
And all the wingless
Celestial hosts.

We must shed tears
For cracked facades
Decaying walls
And lost aubades,
For all we never
Were and knew
For joyful notes
That were so few.
