'Here are some precious tears for you', you said.
A shadow bird was winging through the sky.
His silhouette escaped my finger tips.

Beside our creek the summer sycamores
Were whispering old folk songs to day's end.
You put your shoulder to the weather, Friend.
You lit the hard times with your empathy.
I looked into your Appalachian eyes

Sandra, I get the feeling of such love! You might find my poem 'God in Texas' of interest only because it has a kindred spirit line to the last one in A Keepsake. Thank you. Bill Grace

He brings raindrops and says he brought tears and you also accept them as his tears. Your faith in him as a friend is more than his fake tears in his hand. What a nice way expressing your love and faith in your friend. That shows your soft heart. A lovely poem indeed!
