This Tear needs a Hug

The  summer  night
can  lose  it's  glitter
when  thoughts  no  longer  touch  the  sky
Earthbound  cares
can  turn  to  worries
when  partnered  with  a  weary  sigh
some  vain  repinings  from  our  storms
teach  us  to  pause
and  search  within
The  hearts  we  think  we've  lost  forever
are  merely
just  beneath
our  skin

Wonderful, as is usual. I wonder if the poets of yore are not gnashing their teeth in mute frustration that their work is so consistantly over shadowed by a true master. Well let them gnash. You have my vote.
You know I like this a lot don't you?
