Others' Sighs

The Reflection of a Tear
by art

The reflection of a tear as it leaves your eye

Could be for a mistake or a last goodbye

As it drips on your cheek it feels so warm

Releasing its pain from which it was born

It grows so cold as it traces down your face

Seems to always be more to keep up the chase

It falls to the floor in an endless stream

Breaking open as if to shatter the dream

Soon they are all gone, all used up, not even a trickle

Your mind regroups, catches itself, you re center

Left is but a reflection of light on your cheek

Hidden deep within it is the hope and peace we seek

It is always good to openly cry

It makes you stop and wonder why

And in that... is the growing from the pain
