What A Tear Could Be Worth


I feel tears they flow freely.
Upon tender cheek they
reside. The taste salty as the
mirthful sea, there
wetness silky smooth as
precious oil.

This phenomenon comes with
a twist, it can arrive
with loving heart felt gleam,
or faint out of fears
quest, what ever the reason
it has a profound affect
upon the soul.

God laid hands upon the soul
of man and gave him
the ability to shed a tear, and
this visual happening
provides the onlooker proof of
acclamation weather
gleeful or sorely perplexed.

If we are auspicious in this
realm of uncertainties
called life, that are blessed in
abundance with heart
felt tears of joy, count your selves  
fervently fortunate.  


Remember God blessed man,
but not all men get
the chance to experience this
blessing so profoundly
abundant.

"not all men get
the chance to experience this
blessing so profoundly
abundance".
It has been awhile since I last shed a tear but there have been moments when I have come close, one of my closest friends moved to Australia 8 months ago, I think about her everyday day and each time I feel like sheding tears but also smiling remembering the good times. Yes a tear is worth a lot. Your poem reminded me of my friend. A beautiful piece of poetry, you have captured the nature and essences of tearing perfectly.

Lovely poem for a lovely lady. I cry at the drop of a hat....happy, sad...makes no difference....my brother and sisters used to tease me without mercy! And I judge movies by the number of Kleenex I need to use..

In our tears, we reveal our hearts
In their tiny pools, we mirror our feelings
In those drops, we show our souls. . .

Beautiful Cerenity-1. . . just wonderful. . .

And like deVine, I cry at just about anything. . . including this. . .

Excellent. . .

This is a wonderful poem Cerenity.  Our tears allow such release. It's always perplexed me how both great joy and desperate sadness can yield the same result. We are indeed fortunate and complex creatures.

A
tear
that falls
for another
dilutes the
sorrow of
a heart

Hi Brian,
I wish sometimes that I didn't cry because then my anger would be more profound to the one I was angered by, thank you for your kind reply.

Hi Miss Poet deVine,
Gilr friend you too ha, yes but we keep the kleenex company going, and I think they are in coehoots with the film makers anyway.

Hi Sven,
Your so sweet, my soul is smiling at you my friend, thank you for your lovely reply.

Hi Kit,
Yes but tears of joy are almost always followed by a smile, but you are right we are so complex, thank you.

Hi Marge,
You have released this heart from much weight, and whats so wonderful is that you are just being you (a loving friend) Thank you so much.

Love,  Cerenity

I can relate to this poem...tears come easily for me happy and sad.  This is a wonderful poem, I look forward to reading more of your work!!

I must say THIS MAN has experienced "blessing?" or CURSE very abundantly. Great poem though.

All my love,
Jeffrey
