Tears

Sometimes the tears are for
what might have been,
if the bite of life’s
blade was not felt so keen.

Sometimes the tears are for
what I have lost,
things taken away
without chance for riposte.

Sometimes the tears are for
trouble ahead,
what storm clouds will rain
upon cherished sons head.

Sometimes the tears are for
loneliness bleak,
enforced isolation
with no words to speak.

Sometimes the tears are for
father I’ve lost,
taken too soon
to leave heart touched by frost.

But these tears are for you.

    Absolutely beautiful, moving write. How much I could feel these words indeed… and here, oh I was caught off-guard indeed,

    “Sometimes the tears are for
    father I’ve lost,
    taken too soon
    to leave heart touched by frost.

    But these tears are for you.”

    Brilliant writing, exquisite poem. Thank you for this,

      You’re far too kind, you’re making me blush 🙂 but thank you, again, for reading and commenting.

    I don’t tear up much, but, the sadness of this poem is wrenching my heart. Another wonderful work.
