A Tear I Cry


A tear cried for sadness,

Not because I am sad.

I cry for many reasons,

Tears cannot be planned.

A tear cried for loneliness,

Not because I am alone.

I have loyal companions.

And on four legs they roam.


I cry a tear for happiness,

Not always am I happy.

But being content is okay,

It beats a day that’s crappy.

I cry a tear for laughter.

Not everything is funny.

Guess I am thinking silly,

That every day is sunny.

I cry in a pathetic way,

Not taking things in stride.

Foolishness surrounds me.

With nonsense why I cried.
