The Handkerchief And Tears Poem by Ojok Isaac

The Handkerchief And Tears

Rating: 5.0

Rest! Rest! And I rest
Cry! Cry! And I cry
Whatever happens to you
Is directed towards me

You make me sad
So I cry too, to wipe your tears
I absorb your pain in my heart
And pretend I'm alright when wet

And now that I'm old
You kept no room for me
You like the new handkerchief
You forget me...
You sack me...
You drop me...

I'm not jealous
Not even blessed to curse a man
But I know you will
One day cry again
And here I'd be waiting
To wipe your tears my love
