Tears - Poem by sylvia spencer
little drops that fall from the eyes
they come in showers, when one cries.
It's not all sorrow that brings on tears.
Oh how life sheds them over the years.
Tears of joy when a child is born.
This is the start of a great new dawn.
Tears of happiness when a bride
takes her place, up to the altar decked out
in white lace.Tears of sadness when you
lose a love, but the heaven's open to welcome
Tears are meaningless when you have
done wrong, it's that guilty feeling because it
holds strong.Then follows remorse because it
come's with fears and that is what starts all those
Shock can bring tears of a different kind.
Those are the ones that are hard to find.
Then with the problem solved and the worries
over, it's quite possible your dancing in clover.
Tears start from a baby, you cry as you grow.
So don't hold them back just let them flow
If you run out of tissues when you have read
this verse. Then don't wait for the next one it's
ten times worse.
