Why The Tears Come So Often Now - Poem by Shalom Freedman
WHY THE TEARS COME SO OFTEN NOW
Why the tears come so often now
I don’t really know
Is it for all the friends lost?
Is it for all the people I have known
Who have already died?
Is it just my being old,
And near the end?
Is it for the sick friends?
I don’t know why
But now so much more often
Just any beauty
The beauty of a song
The beauty of seeing some simple scene of nature
Brings the tears-
Why do tears come so often now
Why is life which can be so beautiful
Always always passing?
