A Tear - Poem by Dennis Walker

I never thought I would envy a tear
A small dropp of salty water falling from your sweet eye
As you walk out of the door I see it caressing your cheek
I know it was my fault the tear was there
The things I have done you could not forgive

I never thought I would envy a tear
But I look at you and the tear runs slowly down your perfect face
It rips my heart out as I see it fall
O I wish I could be that tear hugging your face caressing you saying I am sorry
If I could turn back time make things right

I never thought I would envy a tear
You turn to look at me the tear rolling down your face
You look at me so cold and say “we are through”
But all I could think I wish I was that tear
I never thought I would envy a tear
