The Tears upon your Cheek
~~~

In the heat of thoughtless anger
some heartless words were said
one glance revealed the tears upon your cheek
Beneath a stubborn pride
this foolish heart was fried
when you turned and tossed your diamond
to the unforgiving deep
~
The rolling waves in cycle
were clawing at the sand
without a word you turned and walked away
This heart was crushed to gravel
on the sand beside the sea
with the sunlight gently passing
from the darkness of the day
~
It could have been a picture
for a future memory
the setting suns' cascade with gentle breeze
I sat there in the sand
meer shell of hollow man
with tears behind the huddle
of my naked knobby knees
~
The seabirds distant call
o're the crash of breaking surf
my vision swirled as then to my surprise
First a shadow ...
just a blur ...
then your hand upon my chin
With your lips you brushed
the tears from both my eyes
~~~

I definately did not expect that ending my friend. With the diamond thrown to the swirling deep...I thought it was all lost for sure. Well done!
