A TEAR of JOY

This is just a little tale
of a tear of joy
that rolled off the face of a pale
young boy.
It all started one day
as a boy began to feel
a new way,
something so real
a reason to live
he realized
he had something more to give.
So he sat and rationalized
he sat and looked around
in his head
and guess what he found
that he already made his bed.
His mind was set
and his heart too
and Marsha he won't regret
saying "I Love you".
And now with his debate ending
now he is certain
here is my begging
now here is my opening curtain.
I started to roll
down his face I went
and I know deep in his soul
that you are the reason he wept.
Oh do not fright
he is not blue
for he closes his eyes so tight
because he knows he loves you!
And so on I moved
off his chin and onto the ground,
into a groove,
which led me around,
to where the ocean i found.
At last to my true begins i have reached,
oh but how this feeling can not be impeached.
Oh how it felt to roll down a face
of a boy who is now a man and knows his place.
which is with you,
and this is true.
Because I the tear of JOY
heard from his mouth deploy
three little words,
with an enormous meaning behind,
and none other so kind.
"I LOVE YOU"
And this my dear is the end of my tale
and i can only hope one day that i will prevail,
to come again
as a tear of JOY
from your kind eyes.
